We are introducing a new Individual and Departmental Travel Card program through Scotiabank.
To obtain a new Scotia Department TCard, Queen's employees are required to complete an application form in acQuire and attend one of the mandatory training sessions offered by Strategic Procurement Services, Procurement Operations unit.
Training sessions will include topics such as when to use a Department Travel Card instead of an Individual Travel card, new Travel Card features, Eligible and Ineligible purchases, Cardholder responsibilities, Security and Transactions, Statements, Late Payment Fees and Overdue Balances.
All Travel Card applicants must attend a training session and successfully pass the related quiz before being issued their new Scotia TCard.
