Purchasing Card

Shopper’s Guide > Fundamentals of Procurement

The Boston University Purchasing Card (“PCard”) is an American Express Credit Card used for small dollar miscellaneous purchases. The PCard Program is designed to provide an efficient means of making routine purchases by reducing paperwork, allowing control and responsibility at the school or department level, and streamlining the purchasing cycle for low dollar purchases.
