Small Purchase Charge Card (SPCC) Program

Procurement Services 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 is intended to be used for all allowable business transactions under $5,000 where a credit card is accepted and the vendor is not registered in buyW&M.

All cardholders and their supervisors must adhere to the William & Mary's SPCC Policies and Procedures.

Card Process

SPCC requests and usage should be minimal as buyW&M will be utilized for the purchase of goods and services. Procurement Services will review all card requests, which is why it is advisable to reach out to the Program Administrator before completing training or an application to ensure a card request will be honored.

Once eligibility has been approved by the PA, FY23 SPCC Training must be completed through Cornerstone before submitting a card application. Card applications submitted before training completion will be denied.

Applicants and Approvers can access the Training in Cornerstone by searching on FY22 SPCC Training in the search bar. Once training has been completed, the applicant must complete the Bank of America SPCC Application via DocuSign located on the finopsforms page. Upon receipt of the completed application, the Program Administrator will verify applicant eligibility and follow up with the cardholder if needed. 

Eligibility for the card program is limited to full and part-time faculty and staff of William & Mary and VIMS in Administrative positions within the department. 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 based on position, anticipated spend or transaction volume, or if the employee has committed a past procurement policy violation.
