UC Commercial Card Award Recipients

2016 Winners

The annual UC Commercial Card meeting is attended by card program managers from all 10 UC campuses, 9 labs, US Bank, Visa, and UCOP. The meeting includes campus presentations on best practices, challenges, and solutions, as well as an awards ceremony.

UC San Diego’s Travel Card team was awarded the Best in Class Corporate Card. The Travel Card team members, Chrissy Smith and Leah Negrete, were recognized for the overall program growth, which is expected to be 21% year-over-year! The award also recognized the team’s innovative, continuous improvement processes and leadership system-wide. The Best in Class distinction was first awarded back in 2007, and UC San Diego had actually been the first campus to receive the honor.

UC Irvine’s Purchase Card program won the Best in Class Purchase Card. This year the UCI Purchase Card is tracking toward an expected $47.4MM in volume, which is a growth of $7.5MM from the previous year! This is trending at 19% year-over-year growth, and demonstrates the team’s dedication to optimization and efficiency.

UC Los Angeles’ Payment Plus received the Best in Class Virtual Pay designation, growing 61% year over year and exceeding $120MM in volume in CY2016.

Congratulations to all of the Commercial Card Award Recipients!
