The University offers an American Express Corporate Card to employees who travel frequently on University business.

2.Scope

The corporate card is available to permanent University faculty and staff. Participation in the American Express Corporate Card Program is voluntary.

Effective April 1, 2021, the University will discontinue the American Express program and will not consider new requests. This policy will remain applicable for any outstanding American Express accounts approved prior to program termination. Related activity and/or alternative options will be managed by Procurement Services.

3.Policy

The American Express Corporate card is issued to the employee and the card is to be used for University business related travel expenses only. Non-travel charges or delinquent payment on account may cause the card to be revoked. The card is for employee travel only and not to be used by the department.

The University has no liability for account balances. Each individual assumes responsibility for all charges incurred on the corporate card. The cardholder is responsible for paying the bill in a timely manner each month. Card members access their monthly statements through an on-line account with American Express.
