Policy Statement
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 and procedures.
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.
