Reports and Governance

Emory University has a fiduciary responsibility to ensure that its resources are used prudently. Its faculty and staff members are eligible to obtain a Purchasing Card to transact department operational business expenses. The PCard is the property of Emory University.

Accounts Payable had developed a strong governance process to monitor, communicate, and educate our cardholders, approvers, proxies, and others on the Purchasing Card program.

What is Governance?

Governance is the establishment of policies, and continuous monitoring of their proper implementation, by the members of the governing body of an organization.

There are many different areas that AP is reviewing to help enforce PCard compliance. Compliance includes monitoring the transactions, communicating the review results, escalating issues where needed and providing education where warranted.
