The university procurement card (P-Card) is intended to be used for small transactions (generally under $1,000) with vendors not available in EPIC.
Using the card will provide quicker placement of orders, greater flexibility in ordering, and reduced paperwork processing. The purchasing card concept is designed to delegate the authority to purchase low-cost items directly to the person to whom it most matters - YOU, the end user.
Each month departments should track purchases made with procurement cards and save all original receipts. When the statement is received, the receipts should be matched to each transaction. The statement and receptions should be scanned and uploaded to the IU Procurement Card Upload Tool for audit.
