Alphabetical Index



The University of Florida Purchasing Card (PCard) is a corporate credit card issued by Bank of America. Just like a regular credit card, it's fast and easy; no waiting for a purchase order number and vendors are paid quickly.

PCards are designed for UF staff, faculty, graduate

assistants, and OPS (technical and professional) employees who make purchases or travel for official University business. PCards are only issued to individuals whose dean, director, or department chair authorizes the request.

All PCard purchases must have a clear business purpose and be permitted by the funding source. All PCard transactions are subject to review by the PCard Team.

The PCard may only be used for purchases that are reasonable and for appropriate goods or services necessary to accomplish the mission of the University.  In the case of PCard use, it is extremely important the University maintain a positive reputation for being a good steward of all moneys.  It is equally important that sound fiscal processes be in place to ensure the appropriateness of PCard use.

Please be sure your department has the budget available before making any charges. For instructions on how to check your budget see the KK Budget Inquiry Instruction Guides on the myUFL Toolkits section of Human Resource Services' web site.
