ProCurement Card Services
The 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.
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.
Coming Soon in Fall 2013: PaymentNet 4
Over the years, PaymentNet has been a part of UW ProCard and CTA which our customers rely on for reviewing and reconciling ProCard and CTA transactions. Now, PaymentNet is evolving. The system has been redesigned to better meet our customers’ changing needs. This will enable you, as a PaymentNet user, to take advantage of the latest advances in technology.
Over the coming weeks, your UW Card Services team will work closely with JP Morgan Chase’ transitions team to ensure a successful migration to the new PaymentNet 4 system. We may ask some volunteer testers as we move forward with the system transition. We will provide more information about the migration process and status update on the ProCard/CTA websites.
Beware of phone/email scams!
We recently received some reports from ProCard holders receiving a phone call or an email from someone claiming to be from JP Morgan Chase; and wanted to verify some information about the cardholders' JP Morgan Chase account. This is a scam!
JP Morgan Chase will contact cardholders to verify unusual charges on your account; but they will never ask for the card information. If you receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from JPMC and asks for your ProCard account number, hang up. Call the number on the back of the card to reach JPMC to verify the status of your card account. Also, NEVER click on any links provided in the email message.
