Chrome River – Attach a PCard Transaction and Process an Expense Report

This article provides step-by-step instructions on how to attach a PCard transaction.

The University of Illinois Purchasing Card (PCard) is a charge card that may be used by University employees to purchase authorized small dollar purchases of supplies and small equipment. If the PCard is used for a purchase, an Expense Report (ER) must be created, and the PCard transaction must be attached to that Expense Report.

  1. From the Chrome River Home screen, select the +Create button in the Expense ribbon.
  2. Complete the Document Header information.
    1. Select PCard for Report Type.
      NOTE: If Athletics is selected, the Expense Report will be routed for additional NCAA compliance review.

    1. Select Credit Card.
    2. Add the transaction to the Expense Report by checking the box next to the transaction.

    NOTE: If the system prompts you for additional information, please add a response in the appropriate box. Any outstanding issues would require a response prior to submission. If there are no warnings prompted, please disregard this instruction.
