A Purchase Card (sometimes referred to as a 'PCard') is a bank issued credit card that is available to employees of the University and its subsidiaries who are permanent or are employed on a fixed-term contract of at least six months.

Purchase Cards provide an effective means of paying for everyday purchases and reducing the reliance on petty cash floats, staff reimbursements, cash advances, and one-off purchases processed through the Accounts Payable office.

To be eligible for a purchase card staff members need to meet one or more of the following criteria:

  • Frequent or overseas travel in the course of their work
  • Responsibility for purchasing significant numbers of minor value goods and services on behalf of the University
  • Regular incurrence of small dollar transactions

Purchase Card training, policy and procedure
