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.
