P-Card Dates

Monthly Data Entry Deadlines

At the conclusion of each billing cycle, all transactions recorded in Concur Pcard Module should have a “Business Purpose”, be allocated and have receipts attached.

The timeliness of your Purchasing Card data entry impacts the deadlines of many aspects of the financial reporting process from grants and budgeting, to processing the Citibank Payment. Cardholders will be expected to enter the chart of account strings and attach receipts once a week in Concur Pcard Module. For example, on Friday of each week, the cardholder will enter the chart strings and attach receipts for any transactions that have posted up to that point in Concur Pcard Module. Reconciling and completing the reports will still be due no later than the 10th of each month or the following business day. Failure to comply with these guidelines may result in disciplinary action and/or the loss of your Purchasing Card.

Reminder: Pcard Exception forms must be completed BEFORE the purchase is made and attached to the expense as soon as the transaction is available in Concur. Please note, Pcard Exception forms will not be approved after the transaction has already taken place.

Reminder: Purchases over $500 require that vendor hold search be completed BEFORE the purchase is made and attached to the expense as soon as the transaction is available in Concur
