Procurement Card (PCard) Program

On this page:

The Procurement Card (PCard) is an efficient and cost-effective method of purchasing and payment for small-dollar purchases. Cardholders can make authorized purchases directly from a supplier without processing the traditional paperwork. 

The Procurement Card Program

The Procurement Card (PCard) is the preferred method to purchase non-travel business related items. They function like most other credit cards with state, Research Foundation (RF) or UB Foundation (UBF) program limitations:

  • State PCard is available for purchases up to $4,999
  • RF PCard is available for purchases up to $2,500
  • UBF PCard is availiable for purchases up to $2,500

PCards are issued as credit cards to individuals and are the liability of the university.  Cardholder's personal credit history is not reviewed or affected by issuance of a card.

Your Responsibility for Taxes

You are responsible for providing the supplier with your tax exempt information. If you have been charged NY sales tax, you must request a refund.
