PCards Limits and Regulations

The maximum single transaction limit is $5,000 for the purchasing card; however, the program still must operate within the context of existing state and Board of Regents public purchasing requirements and cannot be a substitute for all other purchasing options. Defined controls for expenditures of public assets must be maintained by each cardholder.


The Purchasing Department is responsible for managing the program.

Each academic or administrative department is responsible for managing its cardholder accounts.

The Program Administrator is responsible for exceptions to the monetary limits and commodity restrictions as well as publication of all policies and procedures relevant to the PCard Program, which are reviewed at least once annually.
