Procurement Card    

Welcome to the State of Arkansas/NorthWest Arkansas Community College Procurement Card Program. As an agency of the State of Arkansas, NorthWest Arkansas Community College is participating in the program that is designed to help better manage low-dollar supply purchases. It is intended that the P-Card be issued to only select full time College employees to enhance the College and departmental effectiveness of operations. All purchases should be for the official business of the college. Liability for payment, total responsibility and accountability for the P-Card transactions resides at the department level.

The State of Arkansas has strict laws regarding the use of the P-Card. NorthWest Arkansas Community College has developed a policies and procedures manual for the use of the P-Card on our campus. Please click here to download the current version of the manual. The state application form for a p-card can be obtained here. You must also fill out an employee agreement form which may be obtained here.  To download a quick reference p-card guide - access this document here.

Before individual P-cards can be activated, NWACC requires all individuals to show they understand and will abide by the rules and regulations made law by the State of Arkansas and the Policies and Procedures approved by NWACC. A small proficiency test is used to determine that individuals have read the NWACC Procurement Card Policies and Procedures Manual and understand the usage requirements of the card.

Please go here to take the test, and when finished, click "Submit" to send the test to the Purchasing Department. Individuals will be contacted to come to the Purchasing Department and go over their results. Your individual P-card will be activated at that time.

Personal purchases are strictly forbidden and will result in disciplinary action.

It is accepted that no policy and guideline statement can cover all eventualities. All College departments shall abide by the terms of the guideline unless written exception is requested and approved by the NWACC Vice President of Finance.

For additional information, please contact the purchasing department at 479-619-4141.
