Procurement Card (P-Card)

The Research Foundation's P-Card program provides you with a business credit card to use for frequent and routine purchases from vendors who accept Visa.

Using your P-Card streamlines the purchasing process and reduces paperwork and waiting time. A few benefits include:

  • Ability to obtain goods and services faster and more easily
  • No need to use your personal funds for purchases
  • Decreased need for cash advances (e.g. for meetings or travel)
  • Simplified expense reporting process
  • Convenient, secure, and flexible
  • Automatic recording of all purchases made by cardholder
  • Immediate payment to suppliers/vendors
