Purchasing Card

The University offers a MasterCard for use by University employees when procuring small-dollar items that would normally be purchased using other paper-based methods. In many cases the card can be used in lieu of a Limited Purchase Order (LPO), Limited Purchase Check (LPC), some Campus Orders and most Blanket Orders acquired on a Purchase Order.
