111.01  PURPOSE.
   The purpose of this policy it to ensure that City issued credit cards and/or purchase cards (such as Home Depot, VISA, Mastercard, Discover) are closely monitored to provide for maximum security and to guard against misuse and/or losses for which the City may be held liable. This policy is meant to comply with the mandates of Sub HB 312 enacted by the 132nd General Assembly. City use includes cases where a purchase order is not accepted for needed services, supplies and/or materials, or are purchased from a vendor who issues a purchase card to be used in conjunction with a purchase order. The City-issued cards are NOT for personal use, and will not be permitted to be carried by personnel on a regular basis for any reason. All City credit cards shall be issued in the name of the "City of Parma Heights, Ohio"; or issued jointly in an individual City employee name and "City of Parma Heights", as may be required by the credit card issuing agency.
