Purchasing Card Audit-Audit Services - Carnegie Mellon University

Purchasing Card Audit Services – Introduction

An effective and efficient purchasing card program requires sound policies and procedures, management attention, and individual cardholder responsibility. With the establishment of the current PNC Purchasing Card Program, Card Services took the opportunity to implement and embed these three requirements (outlined above) into the university’s own program.

Cardholders, verifiers, and approvers were all re-trained on university policies and procedures, and each signed an agreement which establishes well-defined roles and responsibilities with clear accountability for all transactions placed on a university purchasing card.

Purchasing Card Audit Services is responsible for monitoring on an on-going basis compliance with university policies and procedures in relation to the Purchasing Card Program and ensuring that cardholders are adhering to the agreements to which they committed.
