(April 11, 2013) – Today, Mayor Pedro E. Segarra released the following statement regarding usage of purchasing cards by the City of Hartford:
“Purchasing cards or P-Cards were implemented in April of 2004. As a way to increase transparency, better monitor and audit expenditures, and save the City money my administration adopted a new policy in July of 2012 that included a decrease in spending limits and the use of merchant category codes customized for each department. The new policy took 6 months to develop and was reviewed and approved by the Internal Audit Department. The Council recently requested an internal audit of their usage and I fully support it. Once it's complete, it will be shared with the public and media.
