P-card is a VISA credit card that can be utilized to pay College expenses of $2,500 or less. Certain restrictions apply. Example restrictions: only full-time employees of the college are eligible to receive a P-card, no computers or equipment can be charged to a P-card regardless of purchase price, P-card charges can not be split to avoid the $2,500 per transaction limit, conference registrations are the only travel expense allowed to be charged to P-card. Review all P-card guidelines or contact the P-card Administrator at 4468 or Rosalynn.Hoang@cpcc.edu with questions.
CPCC departments are not permitted to use College funds to purchase retail gift cards/debit cards to distribute to employees. IRS regulations consider gift cards/debit cards to be a cash equivalent with a requirement to be added to an employee’s W-2 earnings as taxable income. The P-Card can be used to purchase gift cards for non-employees provided that the purchaser makes the statement that the gift card is not for a CPCC employee.
