P-Card credit limits and single transaction limits can be
adjusted to accommodate special or unexpected purchasing needs or travel. Please follow the procedure below:
Through discussion with the budget manager, determine the appropriate credit/single
transaction limit. Be sure to consider
the entire month when setting the credit limit. Also, be sure that the single transaction limit is set high enough for
the largest single purchase. P-Card
policy prohibits breaking a transaction into smaller transactions to “get
around” the single transaction limit.
The budget manager must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
requesting the increase/decrease. The
email should include the credit limit and single transaction limit requested
and the date when limits should return to standard levels.
The credit/single transaction limits will be
adjusted by the P-Card Administrator.
Both the employee and the supervisor will
receive an email notifying them that the adjustment has been made.
