All cardholders with Pcard activity are required to review their Pcard statement vouchers in WFS.  Even though another user may prepare the submission of the voucher, cardholders are still required to be included in the workflow.  Cardholders may pull up their Pcard voucher after it is processed and review their charges and “save and submit” their Pcard voucher.  Or, the cardholder may be ad hoc’d  into workflow.  If a cardholder is ad hoc’d into workflow, please indicate in message to AP “cardholder ad hoc’d”.  

Vouchers are created and are available to cardholders by searching on invoice id that begins with their email username.  You will not have a voucher if you did not have any activity on the card during that billing cycle.

All Pcard vouchers for the billing cycle ending December 20th must be submitted to workflow and approved by January 20th.
