The Office of Procurement administers the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Small Purchase Charge Card (SPCC) program for William & Mary and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS). The SPCC program is designed to streamline the procurement and payment of small dollar goods and services. The SPCC is intended to be used for all allowable business transactions under $5,000 where a credit card is accepted.
All cardholders and their supervisors must adhere to the College's SPCC Policies and Procedures (pdf).
Some benefits of implementing the Commonwealth’s SPCC program are:
- Cardholders using the card can quickly obtain needed goods and services.
- Operating expenses are reduced by moving payments from a more expensive Purchase Order process.
- Vendor relationships are improved by providing payment in as little as 3 days.
- SPCC payments help William & Mary comply with Prompt Pay requirements.
Requesting a Card
To request a card, eligible faculty and staff must complete the Bank of America SPCC Application (.pdf) and submit the completed form to the SPCC Program Administrator. Upon receipt of the completed application, the Program Administrator will verify applicant eligibility and follow up with the applicant and supervisor with training requirements.
Eligibility for the card program is limited to full and part-time faculty and staff of William & Mary and VIMS. Students, contractors, consultants, and visiting faculty are not eligible to receive a card. A card application for an eligible employee may be refused at the discretion of the Program Administrator if the employee has committed a past procurement policy violation.
