Welcome to the NASA Purchase Card Web Page maintained by the NSSC. The NSSC
functions as Lead Agency Program Coordinator (APC) for NASA's Purchase Card
Program and serves as the contracting officer for NASA's charge card contract with
the bank contractor.
The Lead APC develops best practices and procedures for the P-Card Program; ensures purchase cards managers are properly trained and fulfill requirements set forth by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), GSA, and NASA; maintains content of the Agency-wide on-line training course; and, supports Headquarters in developing and
improving procedures, circulars, and assessments on purchase card activities, both internally and outside the Agency.
The APC also provides oversight of the purchase card program through Center Program Coordinators. Each Center has Center Program Coordinators that provide account set-up, perform reviews and audits of Center p-card transactions, assists with monthly reconciliation and is responsible for the overall management of that Center's Purchase Card Program.
