APS Working Cash

APS fronts cash to pay bills, then files claims for reimbursement.

The APS cash balance (which is like a savings account) is currently about $53 million. Though that sounds like a lot of money, it is really only about one month’s worth of expenses which include those that haven't yet been reimbursed by the state (the New Mexico Public Education Department is a repository for federal and grant money that it passes on to school districts).

Balances can very widely, including a high in June 2016 of $38 million. As of January, APS was owed more than $17 million in reimbursements.
