Updated Credit Card Policy and Procedures

Andrew Walters, Vice-President Finance and Operations has announced the release of new and updated policies and procedures to support the use of credit cards at UNSW.

In recent months Finance has liaised with key stakeholders (including members of Management Board, Executive Team and Leadership Forum) within the UNSW community to agree the best approach to balance our financial controls and desired commercial outcomes.  

To better support staff in making decisions regarding business expenses and the use of UNSW credit cards a revised Credit Card Policy and Credit Card Procedure are now available as well as a new Policy and Procedure for Business Expenses.

The new policies and procedures are simpler and easier to understand and provide: 

  • clear principles to assist staff in their assessment on what are and what are not appropriate business expenses

  • a consistent approach and understanding of acceptable business expenses throughout the University

  • clarity around suitable use of UNSW Credit Cards including an updated clause on the sharing of credit cards

All staff are urged to read through these updated policies and procedures (see the links below) and if you have any questions contact the Director of Group Financial Control, Catherine Yeung, (x52165) or the VPFO office (VPFO@unsw.edu.au).
