A Procurement Card (also known as a Purchasing Card, or PCard) is a Visa charge card, which may be used for the purchase of business-related goods and services, excluding travel-related items. PCards are often issued to help with purchasing lab supplies, etc. The process of obtaining a PCard should be initiated by the PI of a lab.
