Purchasing cards permit authorized employees to purchase products or services directly from
vendors without having to go through the traditional purchase-to-payment process. Increased
use of purchasing cards provides many benefts faster receipt of goods, lower transaction
costs, better buying power with selected vendors, among others. With the success of these
programs, however, come signifcant challenges, one of which is the ability to efectively
monitor and analyze this high volume of (generally) low-value transactions.
ACL has extensive experience developing analytic tests help you uncover critical control
exposures within a P-Card program and also improve process efciencies while building a
culture of compliance across the organization. Get started today with our Top 10 P-Card tests!
