Warning issued on purchasing
Services is warning U.Va. employees to follow procedures for the
use of the University Purchasing Card or risk losing cardholder
warning came in the wake of a state audit of University accounts
that found that the card, which acts like a credit card for making
purchases under $2,000, was being misused.
main thing was that supervisors were not looking at employees
statements and signing off on them, said Dolores Hildebrand,
the administrator of the purchasing card program.
urged those who use the card to know the rules, adhere to purchasing
limits, and keep their receipts. More information on card procedures
