 Purchasing Card Program

 Official State of West Virginia "Purchasing Card"

The West Virginia State Purchasing Card Program was implemented in 1996 addressing the need for a process that would create more accountability for purchases, improve relations with vendors and save the State millions through cost avoidance.

E-Travel and Travel Operations

The West Virginia State Auditor's Office partnered with CGI, Inc., to develop an end-to-end electronic travel solution for all state government and higher education institutions that is integrated with the wvOASIS system. Employees of the State of West Virginia are able to book their flights, cars and hotels, obtain authorization for their travel, add expenses and submit their expense reports all within the state-wide E-Travel System.

With a user friendly interface, the system includes functionality to automate per diem and mileage calculations and other policies, which saves state employees time, reduces travel spend and insures policy compliance. In addition to the automation of policies, the system also integrates electronic workflow and reporting. Currently E-Travel Training is conducted in person during the Implementation Process, but all training materials can be viewed by navigating to: MyApps  Enterprise Readiness  Training  Travel  Employee Travel

To maintain continuity in the travel audit process, the E-Travel Section is also responsible for the accurate and timely audit of travel reimbursement requests for those agencies who do not use the E-Travel System.
