District receives rebate for using charge cards

The Beaufort County School District will receive a rebate of about $87,000 for using purchasing cards â€" similar to company charge cards â€" instead of checks to make some purchases, according to a letter this month from the S.C. Comptroller General's office.

The district's participation in the state's purchasing card program allows it to earn rebates on purchases and reduce administrative and processing costs, according to the letter.
