Growing Into a Diversified Program & Managing Compliance

Considering the ever-increasing focus on driving program growth, and maintaining regulatory compliance and transparency, the line between enforcement and administration is often blurred. Increased focus on regulations often means double duty for program administrators. Kim and Eric will discuss how to:

  • drive non-traditional spend to the card in a risk-averse culture
  • detect and prevent fraud/misuse of P-Cards
  • determine steps when a potential regulatory violation occurs

End-User Presentation

Kennesaw State University

Purchasing Card Training—Methods, Significance and Success

Score, Punt or Fumble? Could you view your P-Card Program in the same way you would view a football game? You would never suit up as a football player without knowing the rules of the game nor would you want to coach a team without this same knowledge. Taking it a step further, would you want to wear the referee uniform without knowing the rules and knowing them very well?

Attendees will leave with the knowledge of:

  • Understanding the significance of having proper policies and procedures in place and making them available to all users
  • Easing the stress of the unknown by setting everyone up for success in knowing where to find answers and understanding their role in the proper use of the card program
  • Knowing the methods of teaching and highlights of the different learning styles in adult education
