Spending Limits and Guidelines
- $4,500.00 is the default limit per transaction. The default monthly limit per card is $15,000.00.
- Single purchases cannot be divided to circumvent the $4,500 limit per transaction. This type of process is called a “split transaction” and could lead to sanctions.
- Purchasing will periodically monitor spending patterns with vendors to determine where contracts need to be established.
- Monthly and transaction limits may be increased either on a temporary or permanent basis. Limits must be approved by the Department LFO based on budget considerations.
