Returns, Credits and Disputed Charges
Should a problem arise with a purchased item or charge, the cardholder will attempt to first resolve the issue directly with the supplier. Review of future statements is vital to ensure the account is properly credited for returns, credits and disputed charges. The returned, credited or disputed item shall be noted on the procurement card Expense Report.
Returns: If a cardholder needs to return an item to a supplier, contact the supplier and obtain instructions for return. Note that some suppliers may charge a restocking or handling fee for returns. All returns should be indicated on the Expense Report.
Credit: If an item is accepted as a return by the supplier, a credit for this item should appear on the following month’s statement. All credits should have department account number allocated with object code. The month the original charge was made should also be indicated on the Expense Report.
Disputed Charges: If a cardholder finds a discrepancy on a monthly statement, the cardholder should contact the supplier and attempt to resolve the problem directly. All disputed items should be indicated on the Expense Report.
If a Cardholder cannot resolve a disputed item directly with the vendor, the cardholder should contact Citibank at 1-800-248-4553.
Billing and Payment
Accounts Payable receives a monthly total of all charges to the account, which will be remitted to Citibank. Employees do not pay their own monthly statement.
