					CREDIT CARD USAGE                                                     Policy:              3525

Employees of the Bladen County Schools may be required to make purchases or incur expenses
while performing their duties as employees. The Superintendent has the authority and
discretion to provide bank credit cards to selected employees to use in the performance of their
duties as employees of the school system. This policy establishes the rules governing the use
of Bladen County School’s credit cards.

   A. ISSUANCE AND AUTHORITY

       The Superintendent shall approve the issuance of a credit card to any school employee
       that the Superintendent determines needs a credit card to perform the responsibilities of
       his or her job. The Superintendent has the authority to cancel an employee’s Bladen
       County School’s credit card at any time and for any reason.

   B. ASSOCIATION USE ONLY

       A Bladen County School’s credit card shall be used for school-related purchases and
       expenses only. School credit cards may not be used to purchase personal items or to
       receive cash advances. Employees are required to submit receipts to verify all expenses
       charged to a school credit card. Receipts accompanied by an explanation of each
       purchase or expenses shall be submitted to the finance officer each month on forms
       provided by the finance department.

   C. IMPROPER OR UNAUTHORIZED USAGE

       If an employee uses a Bladen County School’s credit card in violation of this policy, the
       employee shall immediately reimburse the Bladen County Schools for the expenditure.
       If the employee is unable to repay the full amount immediately, the finance officer, in
       consultation with the superintendent, shall determine the best method for securing
       repayment of the funds, including withholding of funds from an employee’s paycheck.
       Employees who deliberately or repeatedly misuse school credit cards are subject to
       disciplinary action up to and including dismissal.

   D. GAS CARDS

       The finance officer shall authorize “gas” credit cards to be used solely to pay for the
       purchase of fuel and approved maintenance for association-owned vehicles.
