The Procurement Card Program offers the university a way of doing business by providing Visa credit cards to end users in the departments. The cards provide an easy, familiar purchase method that will greatly improve customer service by reducing order time for small dollar purchases (under $5000 per transaction) for both commodities and services.

The program helps to lower the overall administrative costs for processing small dollar purchases from order through payment. For every purchase that is made using the card, the processing time and effort the department, Purchasing, and Office of the Controller put forth individually to pay for that order is reduced.

If you wish to obtain a procurement card, please complete the Procurement Card Application, (Attachment A in policy manual) and send it to Procurement Card, Procurement and Contract Services, Box 5003. Questions: contact Procurement at 601-266-4131 or email us.

Procurement Card Reconciliation Training is available.


When purchases are made on the Procurement Card, the cardholder is required to upload itemized receipts (and other support documents as needed) and assign account/budget strings to the transaction in SOARFIN.
