About the Card

 Authorization

GoCards will be issued only to staff responsible for arranging and coordinating travel for their department. Approval for issuance of a department GoCard must come from the department’s Approving Official, as outlined in the Delegation of Authority for the Approval of Financial Expenditures Guidelines. GoCards will not be issued to individuals for solely their use. However, with the appropriate preapproval of travel, a Cardholder may make arrangements when they themselves are the traveler.

It is incumbent upon both the GoCard holder and the traveler for which arrangements are made to be familiar with the university’s travel guidelines and policies as outlined in the SJSU Travel Guide.

Cards are issued in the name of the individual (Cardholder) whose transactions are authorized and approved by their Approving Official. The Cardholder is the only person authorized to make purchases with the GoCard. Approving Officials are designated as outlined in the Delegation of Authority for the Approval of Financial Expenditures Guidelines. Cardholder must also sign a Cardholder Participation Agreement prior to receiving a card.

Cards will be renewed automatically unless the individual Cardholder’s privileges have been terminated.
