PCard Program

The Kentucky State University Procurement Card (PCard) program is designed to provide a more efficient means of making routine purchases by reducing paperwork and waiting time, allowing more purchasing responsibility and control at the department and project level, and streamlining the purchasing cycle for frequent low-dollar supplies.

Contact the KSU Purchasing Department for more information about usage of the university PCard program.

  • The PCard may be used with an approved Standing Purchase Order to purchase routinely needed items. Use of the PCard eliminates the need for multiple requisitions and purchase orders to the same vendor in a fiscal year. 
  • The PCard may be accepted by certain vendors who will not accept a purchase order.
  • Vendors are paid immediately by usage of the PCard, increasing vendor good will, and at times generating better discounts.
