The University of Texas at Dallas Procurement Management offers departments a MasterCard One Card Program for procuring supplies, payment of business services and covering business related travel expenditures. This program simplifies the procure-to-pay (P2P) process and is an inherently fast, flexible method of processing low-dollar-value purchases from vendors that accept the MasterCard credit card.
The One Card Program is authorized by a Texas Procurement and Support Services (TPASS) contract with Citibank. With the One Card you may purchase non-restricted goods and services directly from vendors. The One Card also allows cardholders to cover authorized travel and related expenditures while in travel status. This program will reduce the time and effort required to make payments for university purchases. The use of the One Card to pay for a purchase does not exempt the university or its officers and employees from the purchasing/travel requirements of state law and the TPASS.
Did you know?
Typically, at least 80% of an organization’s payments are less than $2,500 each, yet equating to only 5% of total spend. Processing payments such as these through a traditional P2P process yields on average $93.00 in process cost per transaction. Utilizing the One Card to cover these low-dollar-value purchases yields on average $22.00 in process cost (saving the University $71.00 per transaction).

How do I use the One Card?
The One Card works a lot like a credit card. A cardholder may make low dollar value purchases (up to the maximum single transaction limit on the individual card) from vendors that accept MasterCard credit cards. The card may be used for purchases of goods and services that are specifically related to the cardholder's area of expertise and/or their job-related duties at The University of Texas at Dallas.
How do I dispute a transaction?
For unrecognizable transactions or purchases that appear incorrect, review your receipts and see if you can match the transaction by dollar amount – some vendor’s process credit card transactions through a parent company. If you still cannot find anything, contact the vendor first and try to resolve the discrepancy. If an agreement cannot be reached with the vendor, you should complete a Cardholder Dispute Form
and fax to the CITI Bank contact listed on the dispute document.
How do I contact Citibank?
The One Card program is serviced using a team approach with CITI Bank’s Customer Service Center. This center is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to assist the cardholder with general questions about the Purchasing Card account.
CITI Bank Customer Service can be reached at 1-800-248-4553.
