Business value

Agencies use purchasing cards so employees can procure goods and services without using the standard purchase requisition process. The feature uses the pages and fields that are related to purchasing cards to provide a mechanism for tracking purchases.

Feature details

Each purchase that an employee makes by using a purchasing card is recorded on a vendor invoice; however, the invoice isn't paid by using a check or electronic payment to the vendor that provided the goods or services. Instead, each invoice of this type is associated with another vendor invoice that is created to pay the vendor that provides the purchasing card services (that is, the financial institution). The card purchases are paid when the balance that is owed to the purchasing card services provider is paid each month. For more information, see Purchasing cards.
