The Procurement Card (P-Card) is defined as a credit card that is an accelerated, flexible purchasing tool administered by the State of Arkansas for conducting official UALR business. The issuance of a P-Card to an individual represents the trust bestowed by UALR to protect its assets and integrity.
The UALR P-Card program utilizes internal management and various methods of control. Internal audits are conducted to monitor all P-Card purchases in accordance with all pertaining documentation, ensuring compliance and integrity. Responsibility and accountability for all P-Card transactions will reside in the department. All cardholders and approvers are required to participate in annual training and achieve successful assessment of their knowledge of all procedures.
