Introduction to the SPCC Program
  • The College of William & Mary is a Tier 3 institution.
    • Allows the College more autonomy to meet the needs of the institution.
  • The SPCC program is administered in accordance with the College’s Small Purchase Charge Card Procedures found on Procurement web page.
  • http://www.wm.edu/offices/procurement/W-MSPCCPolicies-ProceduresforRestructuring04_04_12.doc
  • The SPCC should be used for all allowable business purchases under $5,000 where a credit card is accepted.
  • SPCC cycle dates run from, roughly the 16th of the month to the 15th of the following month.
  • New user interface (Works 4.0) – http://payment2.works.com/works
card security
Card Security
  • Your card must be kept in a secure but accessible location.
  • Do not share your card. The card may only be used by the person whose name is embossed on the card.
  • NEVER make a photocopy of your card or fax or email your full card number.
    • Cardholders may fax ordering information to a vendor and call a vendor to provide the card number live, but do not fax or email the full card number to vendors.
  • Internet purchases are permissible only on secure sites – look for a padlock icon and the https:// designation in your browser’s address bar.
  • Report lost or stolen cards immediately to BOA and the Program Administrator.
spending limits
Spending Limits
  • Each card has a transaction limit and cycle (or monthly) limit.
  • Single transaction limits may be set to a maximum of $5,000 (departments’ delegated authority).
  • Cycle limits are set based on cardholder spending requirements up to a maximum of $100,000.
  • Limits may be increased by the Program Administrator with a business justification and supervisor approval via email.
    • Limit changes may be processed on a temporary or permanent basis.

Spending Limits
  • DO NOT authorize charges in excess of your SPCC single transaction or monthly limits for ANY reason.
    • If a limit increase is needed, email the Program Administrator with a justification and supervisor approval.
    • If a transaction is processed by a vendor without your consent, talk with the vendor directly, document your conversation and advise the Program Administrator to dispute the charge.
  • Splitting orders to circumvent limits is STRICTLY PROHIBITED and may be cause for card revocation.

tracking your purchases
Tracking Your Purchases
  • Best Practice: Reconcile your transactions as you go on a Purchase Card Log.

  • If an item that posts to your account appears to be fraudulent, contact BOA Visa and the Program Administrator immediately.
  • Cardholders are responsible for keeping track of and documenting any outstanding items awaiting resolution (credits, etc.) until completely resolved.
