Applicants and Approving Managers need to be aware that when submitting and/or approving an application, you are consenting to the following statement – note, this is included in the application under Acknowledgements.

For Cardholder (Applicant)

I certify that by submitting this application for a PCard, I acknowledge that I have read the Queen’s University Procurement Card Policy and Procedure in full and agree to abide by the terms set out therein; this brief summary is not a substitute for understanding the terms of the Policy and Procedure.

I understand that the PCard is the property of Queen’s University and is to be used solely for making purchases on behalf of Queen’s University.  The PCard is not a personal credit card and is never to be used for personal purchases.

I understand that all receipts and statements must be kept on file for at least seven (7) years, Research account receipts may need to be retained for longer, for tax and auditing purposes.  Furthermore, I understand that I am responsible for seeing that the mandatory monthly reconciliation on my account is done through the credit card provider’s website in order to verify all purchases are legitimate, that they are for university purposes only, the purchases are not from the list of prohibited purchases (please see the Queen’s University Procurement Card Policy and Procedure for more information), and that the taxes and transaction amounts are correct.

I understand that if I violate any of the conditions of having a PCard, I will risk losing the use and privilege of this PCard.

I agree that I will keep my PCard number confidential and should the card be lost or stolen or any unauthorized charges appear on my statement, I will immediately notify the credit card provider.

For Approving Manager

I certify by approving this document, I acknowledge that I have signing authority for the default account chartfield which is indicated in this application.  Furthermore, I agree to review or have someone of at least one level above the cardholder review and sign off on all transactions on a monthly basis.
