P-Card

University Procurement Cards

The P-Card program provides a more efficient, cost-effective method for paying for supplies and small items in amounts not exceeding $2000. The P-Card is not intended to avoid or bypass appropriate purchasing procedures or bidding requirements. All purchases must be made in accordance with University Policy 17.11 Procurement Card

The P-Card is to be used for official University business purposes only and may not be used for ANY personal transactions.

The P-Card is issued in the employee's name. The Cardholder (employee) is responsible and accountable for the security and documentation associated with the use of the SFA Procurement Card.

All cardholders will be added to a P-Card ListServ through which updates and changes will be posted.
