Go beyond P-Card training. Require or offer training on your organization's standards and any related policies involving the following topics, which help support a healthy card program as well.

Information Security

Do employees know:

  • what they can divulge about the organization to non-employees?
  • how to create strong passwords?
  • where/how to dispose of sensitive documentation?
  • how to identify fraudulent emails?

Ethics

Are employees allowed to: 

  • receive gifts from suppliers?
  • share information about one supplier with another supplier?
  • use organization resources (e.g., copy machine, projection equipment) for personal purposes? 

Red Flag Behaviors

Does your organization train management members on the red flag behaviors (by employees) that might indicate internal fraud? The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) offers a great resource on this: ACFE Report to the Nations on Occupational Fraud and Abuse.

Disaster Response and Recovery

P-Cards are likely part of your organization's disaster recovery plans, but do you conduct training on such plans? Help avoid chaos during a disaster by mandating annual training for key personnel. This could include presenting different disaster situations and quizzing trainees on how to respond.
