Purchasing CardUT Dallas Procurement Management offers University departments a MasterCard Purchasing Card Program for ordering supplies or business services. The program is a fast, flexible method of processing low-dollar-value purchases from vendors that accept the MasterCard credit card. This program simplifies the process of purchasing commodities for the University.
The purchasing card works like a credit card, and carrying one is a privilege based on trust. In order to obtain a procurement card, an applicant must first become certified in its use by completing pre-application testing and cardholder training.
The Purchasing Card Program is authorized by a Texas Procurement and Support Services (TPASS) contract with Citibank. With the purchasing card, departments may purchase non-restricted commodities directly from vendors without issuing a purchase order or entering an accounting transaction. This program reduces the time and effort required to make payments for University purchases.
The use of the purchasing card to pay for a purchase does not exempt the University or its officers and employees from the purchasing requirements of state law and the TPASS.
CITI Bank Customer Service can be reached at 1-800-248-4553.
Most travelers will use their personal credit cards to incur expenses and will file for a reimbursement after completion of travel. On occasion, a traveler may request a travel advance. The typical form of a travel advance is a prepaid credit card with a specific balance and time frame for use. In order to request a travel advance, please complete the Promissory Note and Travel Authorization forms.
