The Procurement Card (PCard) is a MasterCard credit card, which can be used for purchases up to $5,000 of all non-restricted commodities from any supplier that accepts MasterCard as a form of payment. PCard use is required for all non-restricted purchases under $1000 for suppliers who accept MasterCard for payment.
The PCard can be used in place of Blanket Orders, Business Expense Reimbursements, Petty Cash, and Check With Orders (Prepaid). The PCard provides a faster, more efficient way to purchase lower dollar goods. While the PCard should be used for any university business purchases, all travel related meals and costs must still be paid using the Travel Reimbursement Forms and/or the Travel MasterCard.
