Colleges and departments should review their methods of payments to suppliers and reduce as much as possible payments that are not sales tax exempt, such as employee reimbursements.
In place of employee reimbursements, colleges and departments may consider establishing credit accounts with suppliers or use a PCard for expenses that employees would normally be reimbursed for.
These types of credit arrangements must be coordinated with the University’s Procurement Services department. Please contact Blain Woods, Assistant Director, Procurement Services at (919) 515-6885 or email@example.com.
As always, good business practices must be used by colleges and departments to ensure that credit account expenses have been properly approved, documented and reconciled.
