PCards and Works
PCards are used to purchase many of the items formally bought with Purchase Orders. Supplies, equipment, and materials can be purchased with a PCard. Items purchased over the Internet, such as books, are a good fit for the PCard. The policies are strictly enforced, so be familiar with these before you use the PCard. If you do not have a PCard please send a completed PCard Application to the Purchasing & Contracting Department or to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Works system is an online web-based application that allows cardholders to review, reconcile and run reports on purchases made with their PCard. Given that it is a real-time system, purchase data usually posts to Works within a two day period after the purchase. Once posted, cardholders have the ability to review, approve, and sign-off on transactions. There is no need to wait until the end of the month to reconcile; it can be done anytime.
