PURCHASE CARD FAQs
Can I have an alternate cardholder?
Yes, Approving Officials are encouraged to have an alternate cardholder in order to prevent a work stoppage situation.
My cardholder is leaving, what do I need to do?
A replacement cardholder will need to be identified immediately. Once the cardholder is identified, they will need to be nominated and complete the required trainings. Once they are designated by PERS-5 and they receive their card from the APC, they can start to make purchases. The outgoing cardholder needs to stop using their card for purchases immediately or no less than 1 cycle prior to departure to ensure all purchases are cleared and certified.
My card has declined with the vendor, what do I do?
Contact the APC to see what the reason for the decline. Most declines occur because the cardholder or approving official single purchase or cycle limits have been reached.
What do I do if my card is compromised, i.e. stolen?
Contact the credit card company immediately and then your approving official to turn your card off. The approving official will contact the APC to ensure documentation is completed to order a new card. The fraudulent transactions will need to be disputed with US Bank once they post to the account.
