Use of charge cards for official purchases is managed under the USDA CCSC. The purchase card is the preferred tool of choice for micro-purchases as well as simplified acquisitions.
U.S. Bank's Access® Online system is the electronic system that is used for establishing and managing the purchase card program and purchase card accounts, including account reconciliation and approval. Access to various topics - such as departmental regulations, policy and guides; using Access® Online; training materials; and frequently asked questions - are available to provide guidance in the use and administration of the Purchase Card Program.
