* Faculty may elect to pay for a Business Meal from their own discretionary account (i.e., RID, IIA, start-up or other discretionary accounts). In this instance, pre-approval is not required but Business Meals best practice should still be adhered to.
Discretionary accounts can be funded from various sources such as course overload payments, EdPlus online course development, EdPlus online course flips, faculty awards, etc. These funds can be used at your discretion, as long as it is not in violation of any ASU policy and supports the public mission of the university. Typical expenses include travel, professional dues, and memberships, educational resources, etc. Unused funds from one year roll to the next fiscal year, allowing you to save up for a larger purchase, if necessary. Any durable goods purchased such as computers, monitors, and equipment remain university property.
Unused discretionary funds from one year roll to the next fiscal year, allowing you to save up for a larger purchase, if necessary. If you separate from CHS, unused discretionary funds revert to the College.

An independent contractor is a person or entity contracted to perform work or provide services to ASU.
Behavioral Control: The extent to which ASU has the right to direct, or control, how an individual performs his or her duties. The less control ASU has, the more likely it is that the individual is an independent contractor.
Financial Control: The extent to which ASU has the right to control the economic aspects of an individual’s work. The less that ASU depends on an individual’s work for financial solvency or decisions, the more indicative this is of an independent contractor relationship.

A Purchasing Card, or PCard for short, is a credit card linked to an ASU account that allows the cardholder to make small, incidental purchases. PCards have almost completely replaced petty cash, as it is a more secure payment method and reduces the University’s liability.
Requesting a PCard entails filling out an application, which requires approval by the business unit’s PCard manager. Also, you must complete the PCard 101 training, required by the University. Please contact CHSCompliance@asu.edu to inquire about the process and determine if you qualify.

PCard holders are responsible for maintaining their own records, reviewing transactions in PaymentNet, and verifying transactions in Workday. PCard transactions must be fully verified by the PCard holder and approved by CHS Compliance 30 days following the transaction date.
