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 $5,000. 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 p-card.

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

P-Card in Concur

SAP Concur is now SFA's Travel and Expense Management system. The P-Card program will begin utilizing the Purchase Card processing feature within Concur Expense beginning with the May 4, 2021 billing cycle.

Concur streamlines p-card processes into one efficient solution. Banner detailing, WebFocus reports, and the P-Card Records Portal are being replaced by this modern, centralized and automated platform.

Request a P-Card

P-Card and Travel Card applications have moved to SAP Concur request. There is no longer a need for the Card Application paper form. Future Cardholders can access the application in SAP Concur through mySFA resources tab. Instructions on completing and submitting the form can be found HERE. Once it has been submitted the application will go through a Workflow of the Cardholder's Supervisor. If the Supervisor is not the department head then the Supervisor must "Approve & Forward" to the appropriate department head for approval. The application will then be processed through the Disbursement office. Training will be required before issuance of card.

All cardholders must attend P-Card Procedures training. Banner access is needed if detailing the p-card.
