USF Procurement Card (PCard) Overview

The USF P-Card is a University of South Florida VISA credit card issued by Bank of America. P-Cards are for full time USF staff and faculty to purchase allowable items and/or travel for official University business. P-Cards cannot be issued to students. P-Cards are issued to individual USF employees as approved by their Dean, Director or Department Chair.

IMPORTANT: All P-Card users must have a Reconciler and a back-up Reconciler to process P-Card transactions. Reconcilers handle electronic transactions and paper receipts and reports. Reconcilers are established within each department. If you are not sure if you have a Reconciler, check with your department fiscal staff. Reconcilers can be cardholders but must have a separate approver.

Charges to P-Cards are paid electronically, by the University. No more paper invoices to process! The cardholder is responsible for appropriate use of the P-Card but does not pay the bill.
