Procurement Services is pleased to announce the implementation of the Purchasing Card Program. The program will allow for the direct purchase of small dollar items through the use of a University credit card. Procurement Services is now offering this program to the staff and faculty. Our ultimate goal is to substantially eliminate the need for small dollar purchase orders, direct reimbursements, petty cash accounts and operational advances. The major objectives of the program include the following:
- Simplify the acquisition of goods and services
- Streamline the Purchasing & Accounts Payable process
- Reduce processing costs
- Reduce Purchase Order and Accounts Payable cycle time
- Reduce Purchasing and Accounts Payable transaction volume
The purchasing card is a University credit card and is to be used for University business purposes only. The University is responsible for payment of all authorized purchases made with the card. Purchases will be charged to the card holder’s department.
