    2. Employee Submits Enrollment and User Agreement Forms - The employee will be expected to read these procedures and will be required to sign the Purchasing Card User Agreement indicating that the employee understands the procedures and the responsibilities of a Cardholder. Both forms need to be completed and submitted to the Purchasing Card Administrator at the same time.

    If you do not receive these emails and have made charges on your Purchasing Card, please check your junk email and if these valid emails have landed there; add them to your "safe sender's" list.

    8. Automatic Cancellation - Any P-Card with no activity for a period of 18 consecutive months will be canceled by JPMorgan Chase without notice.

    • It is the Cardholder's responsibility to safeguard the Purchasing Card and account number to the same degree that a Cardholder safeguards his/her personal credit information.
    • The Cardholder must not allow anyone to use his/her account number. A violation of this trust may result in the Cardholder having his/her card withdrawn and disciplinary action taken.
