Program Implementation Steps and Resources
Implementing a P-Card program, whether for the first time or as a result of a rebid, requires careful planning and project management. A common mistake end-user organizations make is launching a request for proposal process to select an issuer before identifying their card-related needs and gathering data about their potential (or actual) program.
