What You Should Know

Departmental Purchasing Cards, formerly referred to as departmental credit cards, are University credit cards used to buy and pay for purchases that benefit the department. Purchases that are tied to an individual’s travel, job duties, or research should be paid for with the individual’s Travel and Expense Card.

Who Should Have a Departmental Purchasing Card?

If you are responsible for creating requisitions, shopping in the Marketplace, or using a departmental credit card to procure goods or services on behalf of your department, you are a candidate for a Departmental Purchasing Card.

Using the Departmental Purchasing Card

This card is used to make general purchases for the department’s use or benefit. Typical charges might include catering, supplies, and recurring charges. As with other credit cards, expenses must be necessary, reasonable, allowable, and appropriate in accordance with Princeton’s business expense policy.
