Obtaining a Purchasing Card

For the purposes of efficiency in administration and management, approved and trained departmental PCardholders are authorized:

  • To make purchases of goods, materials, and supplies not exceeding $20K;
  • To pay for approved services not exceeding $20K;
  • To purchase professional 1 year subscriptions;
  • To pay professional conference registration fees;
  • To pay professional membership dues;
  • To purchase airline tickets, lodging and ground transportation after the required training is completed

University departments that have been issued a PCard do not have to use the services of the Purchasing Department for these small purchases. If the department wishes to process the purchase through the Purchasing Department, normal procedures for processing a Purchase Requisition in LoboMart should be used.
