Purchasing Card ISUPP 2570

The Purchasing Card (PCard) policy has undergone revisions to update non-substantive issues, as well as the following substantive changes.

  • Creates a new category of PCard user, who are granted additional privileges, including: increased spending limits and permissions to use a PCard on select regularly excluded items. PCard Super User status is granted to a small subset of PCard users and attaining this status requires a legitimate business need and additional training.
  • Changes to reconciliation timeline. 
    The timeline in which to reconcile PCard purchases has been solidified, changing from “in a timely manner” to “within 28 days of the transaction.”
  • Changes to receipt documentation.
  • PCard users will now be required to upload receipts into the banking system. It is still required for individuals/departments to maintain a record of all receipts; however, it is no longer required for hard copy receipts to be maintained and stored. Copies of scanned receipts must be stored electronically within departments.
  • New language about conflicts of interest and a warning to avoid unintended contractual obligations.
