No Airfare Should be Purchased on PCards
The university launched a new travel initiative that went into effect on August 1, 2018. With this initiative, individuals traveling on university business must book their flights through Ohio State’s contracted travel agency – Corporate Travel Planners (CTP).
With an authorized T#, travelers/arrangers must book individual business airfare directly with a CTP full service agent or in the online booking tool (Concur). Airfare must not be purchased with university issued PCards (Department, Service Center, Individual, or GET Cards). PCard transactions will be reviewed for compliance.
For more information, contact the Travel Office.
PCard Best Practices
Card Manager/Cardholder Transition
|The Office of Business and Finance requires active PCards be cancelled upon the departure of the Card Manager/Cardholder. These accounts must be cancelled upon employee transfer (to another department within the University or another job whose duties do not include those related to a PCard) or termination of any kind (including retirement and involuntary/voluntary termination). In these situations, follow the below steps:|
The PCard Office will then notify your area when the card is ready for pick-up (typically 3-5 business days after the card is ordered).
