Small Purchase Charge Card (SPCC) offers departments an alternate payment method when making small purchases. This method gives departments the opportunity to purchase goods and services, costing $10,000 or less. Bank of America is the charge card vendor for the Commonwealth of Virginia.

The charge card eliminates vendor invoices and consolidates multiple vendor payments into one monthly payment to Bank of America. Bank of America makes payments directly to the vendors. Information reports are available to help cardholders and departments maintain control over purchases and payments. Departments shall maintain a record of their purchases so spending limits can be monitored and purchasing activity can be reconciled to the monthly card statements. Departments must retain all SPCC records for three (3) years plus current fiscal year for auditing by the Cash & Investments Office.

Currently, use of the SPCC is limited to amounts up to $10,000 per purchase transaction without approval by Cash & Investments and Procurement to make purchases over that amount on the SPCC. Departments are liable for authorized charges made using the SPCC, cardholders are responsible for official University purchases only. The University does not permit use of the card for personal items; cash advances, and travel expenses (with the exception of mass transit and conference registration fees). To maximize the reduction in administrative costs, cardholders should make purchases from vendors who accept the card.

Cardholders may contact the Small Purchase Charge Card (SPCC) Program Administrators at if they have questions concerning appropriate use of the card.
