(a) The county auditor may examine each order and requisition on community college district funds transmitted by the county superintendent of schools. If the county auditor allows the order and requisition, he or she shall endorse thereon "examined and allowed," and shall date, number, and sign it, whereupon it shall become a warrant on the county treasurer. The county auditor shall detach any bill attached to the requisition, and shall number the bill, giving it the same number given to the warrant, and file it in his or her office. The county auditor shall thereupon return the order, requisition, and warrant to the county superintendent of schools, who shall transmit it to the governing board of the district for issuance to the payee or to the order of the payee.
(b) (1) Any requisition of the county superintendent of schools, whether based upon written order of the governing board of a community college district or authorized by law, shall constitute full authority for the signature for allowance thereof by the county auditor as a warrant on the county treasurer, and no other authority shall be necessary or required for that action by the county auditor.
(2) "Requisition," as used in this section, includes any order or demand signed by the county superintendent of schools directing the county auditor to draw his or her warrant on the county treasurer.
