Reminder of Appropriate Use of University Purchasing Cards (P-Cards)

    Keep yourself and your department out of trouble by using the p-card only for University business. Don't use the p-card for personal purchases, for yourself or someone else, even if the employee plans to reimburse the University or your supervisor tells you to. This is wrong and it violates your cardholder agreement with the University. Remember, you signed the Cardholder Agreement where you agreed to not use the p-card for personal items, only for University business. If an employee violates this agreement, you may be disciplined, the Purchasing Department will cancel your p-card, and Internal Audit will be called to review the department's p-card transactions. Don't let this happen to you! If you have questions about appropriate p-card use, send an e-mail to or call 277-9649.
