 Purchasing Card

Purchasing Card Program

UWSP faculty and staff, including LTEs, are able to purchase many of the items that they need to do their work more efficiently with a credit card. A Purchasing Card (P-card) is a controlled credit card that is intended for best-judgment (under $5,000) purchases.

It is a tool to manage purchasing and accounting resources by concentrating low-dollar purchases in a less paper-intensive process. Use of the P-card results in a UWSP liability, not a personal liability. Therefore it is authorized for official state use only, not for personal charges. All documents related to the P-card may be fully disclosed as a public record to the extend provided for by the Open Records Law.

All purchases with the card must comply with the guidelines in the UWSP Cardholder Manual and with extramural funding agency restrictions. You must check for Ineligible Vendors prior to making any purchase.

Details of the Purchasing Card Program can be found on here.  

*Fleet Fuel Cards - Fuel is NOT allowed on the Purchasing Card. Each state vehicle or state owned equipment requiring fuel should have a Fleet Card. Contact Facilities Services for this card, x2324.

 Pro-Travel Card

 Pro-Travel Card Program

Many travel plans are reliant on a traveler using a credit card to make purchases or secure reservations. UWSP faculty and staff, including LTEs, may apply for an institutional liability card for travel related purchases. Pro-Travel cards are issued with a standard $3,500 limit. If you believe a higher limit is necessary, permanently or temporarily, please reach out to Payment Services.

Balances on a Pro-Travel card are paid bi-weekly by Payment Services and need to be reconciled by the traveler. These payments are billed back to a pre-determined department funding string. Expenditure transfers may be required to split Pro-Travel expenses across multiple funding strings.

All purchases must comply with UW System and UWSP polices.

About PCI DSS

The payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) was mandated in January of 2005 to protect cardholders from fraud and identity theft.

The security requirements apply to all system components; whether it be a network component, server or application that is included or connected to the cardholder data environment. In order to meet compliance standards, your area may be required to purchase additional equipment or make changes to your network infrastructure.
