Module 1: The Purpose of the P-Card
The Baylor P-Card program was established to provide a more efficient and cost-effective method for purchasing and paying for small-dollar items, as well as high volume repetitive purchases. Like any other credit card, the P-Card can be used to make purchases over the Internet, or by any other means a credit card transaction can take place.
- The card is a privilege granted to departmental faculty and staff that must be used in a responsible and appropriate manner.
- Fraudulent or intentional misuse of the card will result in revocation of the card, personnel actions against the Cardholder, and/or possible criminal charges.
- Baylor University's Office of Internal Audit and the Purchasing Card Administrator will conduct periodic audits of Cardholders' transaction files.
