The Department of Chemistry permits faculty, research lab managers, and staff to become Procurement Cardholders. Use of the Procurement Card is a secondary purchasing measure only and the majority of purchasing should be submitted through the Purchase Request System or ChemStore/ChemStores East. This method requires that you know and follow University, Sponsor, State, & Federal fiscal regulations and provide all of the necessary documentation through the PCard Program including receipts and reporting. If you have questions, please contact one of your purchasers.
Common PCard Questions
To obtain a Procurement Card, fill out the Cardholder Application and submit via the Business Services Helpdesk or email the Director of Finance, Stephanie Preo, for department authorization. If you are a non-faculty member, you will be required to obtain written approval from your supervisor within the Department of Chemistry and provide that documentation with your completed application.
Once the department processes your request it will be submitted to the Procurement Service Center (PSC) for final processing. The applicant should receive his/her/their Procurement Card within 10 business days AFTER passing the following online courses in your Skill Portal within the CU Portal: 1) Procurement Card Cardholder Training, 2) Fiscal Code of Ethics Training, & 3) Procurement-Purchasing and Contract Management Training.
Per University Policy, the department determines the maximum dollar amount that each Cardholder can spend in a single transaction and the monthly limit for purchases. Due to the purchasing services provided with the Purchase Request System and will be set at $1500 for cardholders and cardholders are responsible to submit their receipts using the department processes on no less than a monthly basis. The maximum per-transaction limit allowed for any Procurement Card is $3,000 to meet Sponsored Project Uniform Guidance.
