Unauthorised use of credit cards

Officers of the FPC hold corporate credit cards where their functions warrant usage of this facility. Despite each cardholder being reminded of their obligations under the FPC’s credit card procedure, four employees inadvertently utilised the corporate credit card for personal expenses.

These matters were not referred for disciplinary action as the Chief Finance Officer noted prompt settlement of the personal use amounts, and, that the nature of the expenditure was immaterial and characteristic of honest mistakes.
