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.
