Can I set a limit to the amount of resources or Azure credits my departments will use?

Azure CSP does not have the option to restrict usage of resources or an option to set spending limit. Only the MSDN or Microsoft Partner Network Cloud Essentials licensing channel has this. In CSP the provisioned subscription allows all the services available under CSP to be provisioned by the administrator. The resource utilization can be view in the Azure console, but not the incurred cost.

Rhipe however has partnered with CloudCtrl to assist you in reducing “Bill Shock” please contact your account manager to discuss further. Rhipe will provide the CSP partner with  a consolidated bill covering all the resource details end of the billing cycle.
