Policy Purpose

The purpose of this policy is to provide guidance to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NC DHHS) staff as it relates to the DHHS Procurement Card Program (P-card) administration, process and requirements. The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) Procurement Card (P-Card) program aims to simplify procurement and payment processes for selected low dollar, high volume business commodities and services. The program is designed to maintain accountability while reducing the cycle time and administrative burden of procurement procedures such as purchase requisitions/orders, direct pay requests, and expense reimbursements. The card is issued by Bank of America Merrill Lynch (BAML) and is widely accepted by vendors that support Visa card purchases.
