Purchasing Card Information

New Pcard coming!

Bank of America

In the coming weeks, Bloomsburg University, along with the rest of the PASSHE system, will be transitioning from JPM Chase to Bank of America as a new provider for our purchasing and travel cards.

Continue to use your existing JP Morgan credit cards until September 21, 2015, at which time these cards will be cancelled. If you will be in a travel status as of that date and utilizing a travel card, please contact Lori Olshefski to discuss options (X4648). September/final JP Morgan reconciliations will be due to Accounts Payable by Friday, October 9.

New cards are to be used beginning October 1, 2015. Important instruction and tutorials are available on BU's secure intranet. You will need to log in with your BU network user ID and password to view information.

The Bloomsburg University Purchasing Card is an internationally accepted Master Card issued to authorized University personnel to be used for business purposes. It is primarily designed for small dollar purchases of goods and supplies and will eliminate the use of requisitions and purchase orders related to these items. Please see the policy link for detailed information in the use of the pcard.

All purchasing card statements are audited for adherence to the university's Purchasing Card Procedure, as well as the established Spending Guidelines for Public Funds. Purchasing card statements, along with all receipts and approvals, must be submitted to Accounts Payable (see Login/Reconcile tutorial below) during the first week of the month following the cycle cut off date.

Pcard holders will be sent a reminder each month when the statement is due.

Make an appointment for purchasing card reconciliation training.
