The University Purchasing Card

The University of Virginia offers two Purchasing card (Pcard) programs issued through Bank of America. One is a VISA ("State Card") card, governed by the Commonwealth of Virginia, which can be used with any fund source. The other is a MasterCard ("Local Funds Card"), governed by the University, that can only be used for purchases paid with local fund sources  . Both card programs are corporate liability, which means the University pays the bill on behalf of the cardholder. Cardholders can have both a VISA and MasterCard.

Please review the Pcard policy and procedures:
