The purpose of the University of Houston-Clear Lake (UHCL) Procurement Card (P-Card) Program is to establish a more efficient, cost-effective method of purchasing and paying for small-dollar purchases. The program is designed as an alternative to the traditional purchasing process while still following the general Procurement and Accounts Payable (A/P) guidelines. Implementing the P-Card Program to its potential will cause a significant reduction in the volume of purchase orders and vouchers. In addition, the decrease in the corresponding work processes associated with ordering and check writing will result in a substantial cost savings to the University.
Cardholders are designated by their department heads. P-Card applications must be completed by the cardholder and signed by the department head. The department business coordinator must also sign the application to verify the cardholder's default cost center. Questions regarding the application process should be emailed to UHCLProcurement@uhcl.edu.
