Who Are Likely Cardholders?

Because the purchasing card allows the cardholder to place orders directly with the supplier, the greatest program benefits are achieved when purchasing cards are issued to end users. Staff who should be issued purchasing cards may include:
  • Staff who routinely buy books
  • Support staff who buy supplies
  • Physical plant/maintenance staff who purchase parts, supplies, tools and minor equipment
  • Athletic department staff who are responsible for team travel
  • Staff who travel as a part of their normal responsibilities (with limitations)
