Purchase Card Program

If your responsibilities as an employee of Lewis and Clark College call for the use for a corporate purchasing card, your supervisor may authorize your application for a Visa credit card program provided by Bank of America. Some guidelines include:

• Previously, allowable purchases included office supplies, teaching materials,
memberships, subscriptions, and other consumables. The program is now expanded so cards can be used to pay for all business expenses including travel, meals, entertainment, and payments to individuals for services. All conditions of the Lewis & Clark Travel and Entertainment Policy continue to apply, including the use of the Travel & Entertainment Expense Report.

• Purchasing cards do not have ATM or cash withdrawal privileges.

• Personal charges are not allowed.

• Single transaction and monthly purchasing limits will be assigned as directed by your supervisor.

• With the introduction of the new Purchasing Card program account statements are sent electronically the the cardholders LC email address, and sign-off and approvals will be done on-line.

• The card account balance will continue to be paid in full by Lewis & Clark College on the 10th day of the following month. The credit limit is restored each billing cycle after the completion of Cardholder and Manager approvals.

• A printed copy of the card holder’s account statement and original receipts must be submitted to the business office within 10 business days of each purchasing cycle-end date (24th of each month). 

• Inappropriate use of the card or improper reporting may result in credit hold and/or termination of card privileges.

• Interim or prior account statements and transactions can be viewed on-line through the Bank of America web-site.
