Corporate credit cards

Corporate credit cards where KI is financially viable should be used to a limited extent, and only issued to employees where such cards are essential to their work. Generally, this applies to the following: Head of Administration (AC), Head of Department (Prefekt), Administrator at a research group and University Management. If a company payment card is required by an employee not applying to the general rules, a request should be made, by the Head of Department or Head of Administration, to the Head of Finance Office.

The cardholder is personally responsible for all orders and purchases made with the card. The card will be retracted if used for personal purchases. All payments have to be clearly traceable in order to establish that payments are in accordance with KI's rules. More information can be found at Karolinska Institutet's Rules for corporate credit cards where Karolinska Institutet has payment liability.
