Purchasing Card (PCard)

The Purchasing Card Program (PCard) is an efficient and cost-effective way individual employees can make small-dollar purchases, and at the same time, reduce the costs associated with initiaiting and paying for those purchases. 

PCards Limits and Regulations

The maximum single transaction limit is $5,000 for the UNLV PCard; 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 other purchasing methods. 


The Purchasing Team is responsible for the day-to-day management of the PCard Program. 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.

Each academic or administrative department is responsible for the review and approval of all PCard transactions and monthly Statement of Accounts.
