At the time a purchasing card is requested for an employee, the accounting string assigned to that purchasing card must be determined. The accounting string is to be entered by the applicant in consultation with his/her supervisor on the application. The default accounting string, associated with each purchasing card, identifies the fund, department, account, program and project number, if applicable. This default accounting string will be used to post the purchasing card transactions to the general ledger unless modified prior to posting.
