Transaction limits are set by the purchasing card program manager based on department/unit purchasing trends which have been justified via the Cardholder Profile Application form.
The average single transaction limit ranges between $500 to $2,500, with the average monthly transaction limit ranging between $2,500 to $10,000. Exceptions to these limits need to be justified in writing and are subject to approval by the director, Procurement Services.
The splitting of transactions in order to circumvent these limits is not allowed. In instances when a purchase exceeds the maximum spending limit set for a particular PCard a temporary increase can be accommodated by submitting a PCard Change Request to Procurement Services.
Changes to spending limits, card cancellation, replacement of lost or stolen cards, or changes to a cardholders' profile are initiated through the PCard Change Request form which is submitted to the director, Procurement Services by the designated department spending authority.
Examples of acceptable and unacceptable purchases include:
