Purchasing Card Program

Policies and Procedures


The purpose of the purchasing card program is to establish a more efficient, cost-effective method of purchasing and paying for small dollar transactions as well as high volume, repetitive purchases. The purchasing card can be used with any supplier that accepts MasterCard as a form of payment.

If used to its potential, the purchasing card program will result in a significant reduction in the volume of small dollar check requests and petty cash reimbursements.
