WORKS ALLOCATION AND SIGN OFF OF EXPENSEWORKS ALLOCATION AND SIGN OFF OF EXPENSE Works users can allocate and/or sign off as soon as transactions appears in their Works queue: daily, weekly, bi- weekly or monthly. The p-card billing cycle begins on the first of the month and ends on the last day of the month. If the last day is a weekend or holiday, the cycle closes on the Friday before. On the 3 rd of each month cardholders receive a Works email with a reminder that the Cardholder Statement report is ready. Cardholders (or assigned reconciler) should complete Works sign off of all previous month expense by the 5 th of the month or due date provided by your department approver. Submit your p-card packet (signed Cardholder Statement, receipts, and any other required documentation) to your approver on the same due date to complete the reconciliation process. Approvers should complete review and sign off of cardholder expense by the 15 th of the month. P-Card limits reset on the 1 st work day of each month. But, limits don’t completely reset until expense from the previous month is signed off by the cardholder. Delay of previous month expense will delay limit reset and impact spending. 1
