University Procurement Card
209 Darland Administration Building

The University of Minnesota sponsors a purchasing card program to enable employees to make certain business-related purchases for goods and standard services up to $2,499 on non-sponsored accounts and less than $999 on sponsored accounts. The purchasing card provides departments a convenient method of purchasing goods and services, thereby reducing the volume of individual payments processed by the university to vendors.

The UMD Business Office coordinates purchasing card activities for the Duluth campus. Applications may be printed from the web or obtained from Tara Olson at extension 6094. Completed applications should be sent to the Business Office for review and are forwarded to the Twin Cities campus for processing. Cardholders are contacted by the Business Office to make arrangements for card distribution and attendance at a required orientation session. Orientation sessions are held periodically as needed.

Departmental staff reconcile monthly Card Activity Reports in EFS, attach original receipts, and return to the Business Office for auditing and processing.

For Card Activity Report questions please call Tara Olson at (218) 726-6094

For Orientation Session questions please call Sue Bosell at (218) 726-7168
