  • Procurement Card Training Materials

  • Revised Procurement Card Policy & Procedure Manual

  • Q & A Travel Policy with Procurement Card

  •  Changes to Procurement Card Policy Memo from Provost Mike Sherman and CFO David Cummins:

    • All travel expenses are to be paid via the University procurement card (i.e., air fare, hotels, meals, transportation, conference fees). Items where the supplier or vendor does not accept procurement cards as a form of payment, such as incidental miscellaneous trip expenses, may still be submitted for reimbursement. All University employees who travel on behalf of the University who do not currently have travel authorization on their University procurement cards should contact Barb Fuller, ext. 6013, or Matt Beaven, ext. 6268, to have this added. University travelers without a University procurement card should complete an application and submit it as soon as possible (please allow at least one month before scheduled travel to obtain a new card).
    • Any expense that falls within the guidelines established in the procurement card manual should be paid using the University procurement card.
    • The University receives a rebate on all University procurement card purchases and this should provide a more efficient process. Employees who receive points, frequent flier miles, etc. when using their personal credit cards for University business may be in violation of the Ohio Ethics laws.

Effective July, 2013, changes will go into effect regarding the use of the University Procurement Card, as per the recommendations above. 

Only business miles as defined by the IRS will be reimbursed, and only if properly documented and approved.  No personal miles should be submitted.  More guidance in this area will be forthcoming.
