Missing Receipt
There are three circumstances in which a missing
receipt is valid:
1. International Transaction Fees – charged by the
bank for purchases made from international
2. Erroneous Charges – Include fraudulent charges
or vendor charging inappropriately
3. Credits – Given for fraudulent or erroneous
charges, return of items, tax credits, or price
Missing Receipt Form
An electronic missing receipt form is located on the
web at http://web.uncg.edu/bss/MissingReceipt.
This form must be completed for international
transaction fees, erroneous charges, and credits
that don’t otherwise have a receipt.
The form must be submitted online, which will
generate a confirmation email to the cardholder,
PCard Specialist, and PCard Compliance.
Other Missing Receipts
In the event that your cardholder does not provide
a receipt for a purchase, ask the cardholder to
contact the vendor and document who he/she
spoke with, when, and the outcome of the
conversation. This information must be put into
PCWS when an order is created for the purchase.
If still unable to provide a receipt by the
reconciliation deadline, the details of the attempt
to get the receipt must be entered on the Missing
Receipt form and the cardholder will be subject
to the appropriate disciplinary action.
• What is PCard Web Solution (PCWS)?
PCard Web Solution is a web based software
application that allows for complete
reconciliation of PCard charges by acting as an
interface between the bank and Banner
• Where is it?
• How do I log in?
PCWS uses your Banner INB username and
Reset your password at http://reset.uncg.edu
• Who has access to PCWS?
All department coordinators are given access to
PCWS, as well as the system administrators and
What is required to use PCWS?
• In order to complete the reconciliation process in PCWS,
coordinators must have maintenance access in Banner to
the funds they are charging purchases against. Go to:
ity.pdf to obtain the access form.
• PCWS users must be able to access the University network
in order to use PCWS. Special VPN access is required for
those users who are located outside of the UNCG network.
How the Reconciliation Process Works
PCard cardholders:
• Make purchases
• Submit receipts with all pertinent information to
• Sign transaction approval report at end of month
How the Reconciliation Process Works
PCard Coordinators:
• Use the information provided by the Cardholder to enter
purchases into the PCWS order log
– Verify no sales tax charged
– Verify appropriateness of purchase
• Reconcile charges in PCWS by matching orders (PCWS)
and transactions (Bank) – usually a one click process if all
information matches
• Reconcile at least once a week, and all transactions listed
on the previous bank statement must be reconciled by
the 5th of the month.
How the Reconciliation Process Works
PCard Coordinators:
• Creates Monthly PCard Packets
– include a signed transaction approval report, original receipts for all
purchases, and other pertinent documentation (including missing
receipt forms) and must be signed by all parties by the 5th of each
month. The receipts are attached to the transaction approval report
in the order they appear on the report.
• Verify that all transactions submitted via PCWS have posted
correctly to the proper university fund
– Using Banner, Genie, or ePrint
How the Reconciliation Process Works
PCard Program Specialist:
• Oversees the download of PCard transactions from
bank into PCWS
• Uploads reconciled transactions from PCWS into
Banner Finance on a daily basis (Monday-Friday)
• Checks PCWS for unreconciled charges and takes
appropriate actions
How the Reconciliation Process Works
PCard Compliance Auditor:
• Reviews daily transactions for appropriateness
• Periodically reviews departmental PCard Monthly
Packets for propriety. These compliance reviews are
meant to ensure purchases are made in accordance
with State, University and PCard policies.
• Administers Disciplinary actions as outlined in the
PCard Users Guide
For anyone using the PCWS software, there are 4
terms that will make it easier to understand how
the system works:
Order – After a purchase has been made, Card
Coordinators will enter a new order into the PCWS
order log for that card.
Transaction – After the bank statement has been
downloaded into PCWS, there will be a transaction
summary report available to view. A transaction is a
charge that shows up on the bank statement.
• Match – After the bank statement has been
downloaded into PCWS, it is necessary to match the
orders that the Coordinators have entered into PCWS
to the list of transactions provided by the bank. (This
is usually a one click process)
• Reconcile – Once a purchase has been matched, it
will show in the system as “reconciled”. The final step
– DONE button.
Reconcile =
match orders (PCWS)
to transactions (Bank)
Once the DONE button is
pressed, a file is created and the
expenditure appears in Banner
and Genie in 2 days.
