Purchasing Card (P-Card)
The University of Georgia offers a purchasing card program for use in conducting University
business. The VISA Purchasing Card, issued by Bank of America, is a cost-efficient
method for employees to make official purchases at retail locations, over the phone
or via the internet including purchases from statewide contracts or agency contracts.
This p-card program is the only purchasing card program authorized for use by employees
of the University. State Purchasing and Board of Regents both provide p-card policies
which have been incorporated in the UGA p-card policies and procedures.
Reason for policy
To provide an understanding of the p-card program and the basis of UGA p-card policies
Procedures related to obtaining and using a p-card are covered in detail in other
sections of the policy and procedure manual. Additionally, the p-card manual contains
all relevant information in one document.
