Record Keeping and Transaction Reconciliation

The Cardholder is responsible for maintaining records of every transaction made with the PCard. These records should be reconciled to the “PCard Statement” each billing cycle. Documents must be retained by the Cardholder for the current fiscal year plus three (3) preceding years according to official University Record Retention Guidelines. 

Online electronic approval and supporting documentation (receipts, vendor hold check, etc.) must be completed in Concur by the 13th of each month. If the 13th falls on a weekend or a holiday, documentation must be completed by the preceding business day.  Documentation received after the deadline may result in a 30 day suspension for the first offense.
