Oops! They Did It Again: Dealing with Cardholder Misuse

Presented By: Lesley Lackore, CPCP, Iowa State University Purchasing Department

Lesley Lackore, CPCP, is a program coordinator in the purchasing department at Iowa State University, with 16 years’ experience in purchasing card program administration. In addition to P-Card responsibilities, she administers the university’s e-Procurement and requisitioning systems.
