​​​​​P-Card Purpose

Policies and Procedures

The P-Card manual will provide guidance on the proper use of the VCS Purchasing Card as an efficient supplement to purchase orders and to ensure that all charges made with the purchasing card are done so in accordance with school board policy and are for authorized district use only.  Policies and procedures apply to all employees authorized to use either a district or internal accounts purchasing card (individual cards and/or site cards).​

Purchasing Card Manual​

Spending Limits

The principal/department head will set a single purchase limit and a monthly spending limit when requesting a purchasing card for an employee.  Purchasing guidelines set the recommended maximum limit at:

  • $1,000 for a single purchase
  • $10,000 for a monthly spend

The guidelines allow for increases above the recommended maximum limits to accommodate special purchases that otherwise do not violate School Board purchasing policies.  A purchase may be made of multiple items, but the invoice total cannot exceed the cardholder's single purchase limit.  Transactions shall not be split to circumvent the singe transaction limit.

Sales Tax

The School District of Volusia County's purchases are generally exempt from State sales tax.  In order to make taxfree purchases the School District of Volusia County Consumer's Certificate of Exemption should be furnished to the vendor at the time of purchase.  The applicable tax exemption number is printed on the purchasing card.  ​​
