Delegation of P-Card Authority Form
The assigned Primary and Secondary Delegates for the department are responsible and accountable for the security and documentation associated with the use of the SHSU Procurement Card and for complying with all policies and procedures related to the P-Card Program. Primary and Secondary Delegates are initially required to attend one-on-one P-Card Policy and Procedure Training with the P-Card Administrator.

Dispute Form
If a cardholder is unable to reconcile a problem by dealing directly with the vendor, this form must be completed and filed with Citibank within 60 days from the statement billing date of any disputed charge. A copy of the dispute form must be sent to the P-Card Administrator. Formal disputes processed through Citibank are allowable only when an error was made by the vendor. An error made by the cardholder cannot be formally disputed. NOTE: Tax may not be disputed through Citibank's formal dispute process. The cardholder must deal directly with the vendor to ensure credit is received.
