Purchasing Card

The Purchasing Card program provides a business related travel card that reduces the use of personal funds for those employees who are traveling on behalf of the University. The program also provides an efficient method of purchasing and payment of small dollar transactions.

The privilege of using the purchasing card needs to be taken serious and the cardholder as well as the record keepers must be aware that there are consequences when the cards are used for expenses outside of the IRS Accountable Plan or the State of Idaho Policies.

In order to become a purchasing card cardholder or a purchasing card record keeper, it is mandatory that the purchasing card training is completed prior to ordering a purchase card. The training briefly outlines the responsibilities of both the cardholder and the record keeper along with the polices associated with Traveling and Purchasing with the purchasing card.

On this page, you will find the links to the most current versions of the Purchasing Card Training and the Purchasing Card Manual which contains the polices and procedures for the program. The forms to obtain a card along with other related information are contained under the sectional headings on this page.

Please notify the Purchasing Card Administrator of suspected fraudulent charges on your pcard.
