Purchasing Card

The Purchasing Card (P-Card) is essentially a standard Visa card where the liability rests with the University instead of the individual cardholder. (This is different from the American Express corporate card, in which the liability is solely the cardholder’s.) The P-Card is issued to an employee, empowering this person to purchase goods and services on behalf of the University. This program has been established to allow rapid purchase of low dollar goods and services while simultaneously reducing paperwork and handling costs associated with the small purchase process.
