Both the School and University require that purchases be directly billed or done on a P-card. The University has continued to expand our ability to pay with PCARDs, now even for in-restaurant dining without alcohol. You must use the Request for Purchase form linked below for purchasing items, this form must be completed and approved before any purchase can be made. You must allow at least five business days for the form to be processed completed. In many cases, this makes purchasing much easier for the vendor and has the added benefit of employees’ not having to wait 30 days for reimbursement. PCARDS may be used for purchases from $1 to $5,000.
