Purchasing Card Administration
The BGSU Purchasing Card (PCard) is a JPMorgan Chase Visa card that is designed to create a more efficient and cost effective procurement process for limited dollar purchases from vendors that accept Visa. This program will allow the cardholder and authorized users to facilitate emergency supply purchases in which there isn’t time to process the order through Falcons Purch. Additionally, services which cannot be obtained through Falcons Purch can be paid with the PCard.
Oversight for the BGSU Purchasing Card Program will be provided by the Purchasing Department and Internal Audit. Responsibility for appropriate administration and card usage rests with individual cardholders and departments. The Purchasing Department monitors departmental compliance with the BGSU Purchasing Card Program.
PCards are issued to those who do the majority of buying for a department. If you feel you have a legitimate need for a PCard, contact the Purchasing Card Administrator. Once the need is identified, an application must be submitted. The card will arrive at the Purchasing Department within 7-10 business days, at which time you will be contacted by the PCard Administrator to schedule a time for training. At the conclusion of your training session, you will receive your PCard.
