The Procurement Department is responsible for managing all aspects of the University's Bank of America-Merrill Lynch (BAML) credit card program. This includes ordering new cards, cancelling accounts, training new cardholders, auditing statements and receipts submitted and ensuring overall compliance with each program.
Any SHU employee who is a Cost or Budget Manager is eligible to become a BAML credit card user.
The supervisors of the card applicants fill out and sign standard BAML applications. Applications are checked for compliance by Procurement and cards ordered via BAML. Upon receipt of the cards, applicants are trained by Procurement's Compliance Accountant on proper card use, asked to sign statements agreeing to comply with policy and then must use cards as per policy and submit monthly statements and associated backup on time every month.
