Attention Pcard Users:

Iran Divestment Act (IDA) change effective October 1, 2017

Requisitioners and PCard holders must verify that a vendor is not a prohibited vendor per North Carolina State Treasurer’s Final Divestment list and the Iran Parent and Subsidiary Guidance list prior to purchasing, awarding, requisitioning or placing a purchase order with a vendor.  Both of these lists can be found at the link below.

Due to this change, the P-Card limit per transaction will be set to $2,500 and it is no longer required that a written Iran Divestment Act Certification Form be obtained from each vendor.

Please contact the Procurement Department at extension 6766 for questions related to this change.

Office Supplies (State contract 615-A): Forms and Supply, Inc. is the vendor on the state term contract for office supplies.  The state term contract covers office supplies, office equipment, toner, remanufactured toner and paper (paper orders $250 and less).  Forms and Supply will collect your used toner cartridges during office supply deliveries.  A core list of items are highlighted in E-Procurement to help identify and maximize savings.

This is a mandatory state term contract for state agencies.  Due to the mandatory status, it must be used when ordering office supplies, office equipment, toner, remanufactured toner and paper (paper orders $250 or less).  The previous state term contract for office supplies had a condition allowing office supply purchases of $100 or less to be made from any office supply provider.  This $100 or less condition no longer applies under the current mandatory office supply contract 615-A.

What if another office supply provider sales the same product for less than the mandatory state term contract price?  Due to the contract’s mandatory status, the College must provide Forms and Supply the opportunity to match the lesser price.  If Forms and Supply will not match the lesser price then the product can be purchased outside of the mandatory state term contract.

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/debit cards  for students provided that the purchaser makes the statement that the gift card/debit card is not for a CPCC employee.  Special event funds must be used to purchase gift cards/debit cards for students.
