We are ordering items through our supplier's web site using our procurement card as the form of payment. The items will not be delivered for 13 months. Can the procurement card information be held by our supplier for long period of time?


The answer depends on the card agreement your supplier has with their merchant. Some card providers do not allow a company to retain cardholder data on file unless they are following very specific security protocol and even then, they may not allow it. You should inquire with the vendor on how they protect your cardholder data until the final transaction is done. Also, they should notify you at least 10 days in advance of the processing.
