PCard Purchase of Capital Equipment

PCard Purchase Guidelines

While the University requires purchases of moveable capital equipment, to be ordered using Ariba Guided Buying, there are occasions where a unique purchase is done using a University PCard.

When planning such a purchase, you may consult Property Management in advance to determine if the capital equipment GL 571400 is appropriate. If so it can be used in the PCard purchase.

In all cases of equipment purchases over $5000, Property Management requires a vendor quote for the equipment record. We will also request the funding source, equipment custodian name as well as building and room location.

Once the necessary documentation is provided, Property Management will create an asset record and make an appointment to place a BU asset tag on the device.

Please contact Property Management at property@bu.edu to report all PCard purchases of moveable capital equipment.
