P-Card

Welcome to the Roger Williams University Procurement Card (“P-Card”) program provided to us by Wells Fargo. The P-Card provides an extremely efficient and effective method of purchasing goods and paying for legitimate business-related expenses incurred by University faculty and staff

The P-Card is a purchasing tool that offers an alternative to the existing procurement processes and is primarily designed to replace purchase orders and check requests for expenses with a value of $2,500 or less.  The P-Card concept is designed to delegate authority and to give users the capability to quickly and conveniently purchase approved commodities directly from vendors that accept Visa. However, the program is not intended to avoid or bypass the appropriate procurement or payment procedures in place.  Rather, the program compliments the existing processes available.

Please refer to the Policies and Procedures POL110: Purchase Credit Cards user guide that further outlines the benefits of the P-Card program to you, your Department, and the University, and provides you with information needed to use the card while adhering to sanctioned guidelines. All cardholders should read the entire user guide.

Also please refer to the Cardholder’s Guide, Approver’s Guide, FAQ’s and P-Card Request Form for further information.
