University of Colorado Acquisition Card Project: A Successful Partnership of Program, Process, and Systems
Wednesday, January 1, 1997
The University of Colorado was offered and accepted the opportunity to pilot a procurement card program for small dollar purchases. A partnership was formed of users from academic and administrative departments as well as key players from Buying and Contracting and Accounts Payable. The team called on Computing and Network Services to develop a system giving authorized users online access to card-related purchasing transactions, both for verification review and for recording accounting entries. This paper describes the project, which was in full swing by the fall of 1996.
