Paying the Bills Quick Guide – Purchasing Cards (PCards):

  1. Can be used for non-travel and non-PO related purchases under $5,000 that comply with Public Funds Policy.
  2. The PCard policy and related forms can be found on the Accounts Payable website under “PROCUREMENT CARD”.
  3. Receipts should be uploaded to the BOA Works website during PCard reconciliation.  If the PCard is being used to purchase food, please provide documentation as to what the event was and who attended.  This should be included as part of the receipt upload.  The receipt upload and sign off on the transaction can be done as often as you want and doesn’t need to wait until the end of the month, but it must be done by the 15th day of the following month. 
  4. Any purchase greater than $5,000 or requiring agreement to a vendor’s terms and conditions should be entered in SourcePoint to obtain a Purchase Order (PO).
