Messiah College’s Purchasing
Card (P-Card) has been designed to provide a convenient mechanism to manage
expenses for those who travel. It can also provide flexibility when
ordering products online or making purchases at a retail location. The
P-Card can be used for other limited purchases as noted in the Purchasing
Participation in the Messiah College P-Card
Purchasing Program is a convenience that carries several responsibilities.
Although the card is issued in the employee’s name, it should be considered
College property and used with good judgment. All cards are issued at the request of the budget manager.
Those who have been issued a P-Card may
initiate transactions in person, by telephone or via the internet within the limits
of the individual card transaction limits and adhering to the guidelines stated
in this document and the Purchasing Product Matrix. The use of a College
P-Card is a privilege granted by the College, and as such, will be revoked and
disciplinary action taken in the event of abuse, fraudulent use, or failure to
perform related administrative duties.
