The University of Michigan Purchasing Card (PCard) is issued to eligible university employees and may be used solely for purchases related to official U-M business.
The PCard is intended for travel and for low-dollar, infrequent transactions per SPG 507.01. Low-dollar items may be purchased with the PCard if the following two conditions exist: (1) the item is not available from a U-M strategic contract or internal service provider; and (2) the supplier will not accept a purchase order and the purchase is necessary to the mission of the unit.
Procurement Services can assist departments in identifying other options for purchasing goods and services when the PCard is not the appropriate method. For more information on PCards, including PCard policies and procedures, please visit Card Programs.
