Purchase card review

December 14th, 2017

A review of the policy and use of purchase cards is to be conducted by Financial Control and Procurement to ensure their use is consistently appropriate and justifiable.

Purchase card holders will be contacted to help support the aims of the review, and all staff are reminded of the purchasing policy that supports us all in spending correctly for University business.

The review will examine:

  • the number of cards as well as the application process for new cards;
  • the limits on the cards — both transactional and monthly;
  • a reduction in the number of Merchant Category Codes (MCC) to align with the purchasing policy; and
  • potential cancellation of cards where they are not regularly reconciled.
