Submitting a P-Card Request

All purchases made by P-Card will be routed, approved, and funded using purchase requests in the online bank system (Works).

Requestors are individuals who have been provided with a login to the online bank system for the purchase of creating and routing purchase requests. The requester is responsible for completing the online purchase request form, selecting an appropriate cardholder and routing group for the request, and providing the necessary supporting documentation in the P-Card program shared folder (PCardRequests).

Approvers are individuals who have been granted the authority to approve purchases within the various routing groups. All approvers also have the ability to initiate purchase requests.

To obtain access to the online purchase request system, individuals must attend training provided by Procurement Services.  Contact the P/Card Administrator to register for training.

All training will be held at the Francis Tuttle Rockwell campus (12777 N. Rockwell Ave., Oklahoma City, OK  73142)

Use the Corporate Training Building entrance (west end of campus), Room 1880

Split Purchasing

In reference to P-Cards, split purchasing is defined as dividing the known quantity or failing to consolidate a known quantity of goods or services with the intent of and for the purpose of evading the p-card statutory single transaction limit of $5,000 and/or limit(s) established for an individual p-card and/or a competitive bidding requirement.  Examples of split purchasing include the following:

  • Swiping a P-Card more than once during a single purchase in order to avoid the single transaction limit.
  • Multiple purchasing events for goods or services relating to a known single project in order to avoid cardholder-established dollar limits.
  • Splitting a transaction in an attempt to avoid the competitive bid process.

Pursuant to Title 74 O.S. § 85.7 of the Central Purchasing Act, making an acquisition by split purchasing is a felony.
