ProCard is a Visa purchasing card available for faculty and staff, provided they are permitted to receive one by their department administrator who has the necessary delegated authority.
The University's ProCard program is designed to reduce the use of petty cash funds, small dollar purchasing using purchase orders, and eliminate the use of personal funds.
All procurement card users are required to abide by all Washington State & UW purchasing regulations when purchasing with the UW Procurement Card. The ProCurement Card is confined to UW business purchases only, and must never be used for personal expenditures or UW travel related purchases.
The ProCurement Card system includes an online (PaymentNet) system for reviewing transactions and allocating transactions to appropriate budget and account codes. Payments for purchases are processed centrally by UW Procurement Services.
Oversight for the Procurement Card Program is provided by the University ProCurement Card Administrator and designated individuals administering the program in each department. Responsibility for appropriate administration and card usage rests with individual cardholders and departments. Procurement Card Administration monitors departmental compliance with the ProCurement Card program policies and procedures.
