New NAPCP Best Practices Guide Shows Public Sector Card Administrators How to Define, Develop and Implement a P-Card Program

The specialized nature of public sector P-Card programs requires careful navigation of policies, procedures, bid processes, taxpayer scrutiny and more, by those who administer them.


Working with practitioners across public sectors, including all levels of government and public school districts, the NAPCP has released the “NAPCP Government/K-12 Best Practices Guide: Considerations for Public Sector P-Card Programs,” to meet the needs of thousands of government program managers and teams.


The guide was written in collaboration with the NAPCP’s Government/K-12 Advisory Team, which advises the NAPCP on challenges, opportunities, trends and innovation facing the industry today. The NAPCP in turn creates content, tools, and educational and networking opportunities for almost 20,000 practitioners worldwide, in both the public and private sectors.

The guide is specifically organized to take readers step-by-step through the multi-faceted nature of a public sector card program. Topics addressed include:

  • First steps when initiating a program
  • Structuring a program with essential elements and controls
  • Defining roles and responsibilities
  • Creating and applying policies and procedures
  • Creating and using effective training approaches and materials
  • Implementing a reconciliation process
  • Adhering to audit, compliance and regulatory requirements
  • Managing and then optimizing a program once it’s up and running
