University Purchasing Card
Contact for UPC: Karen James x4504
The Banner Finance System should always be your first choice for obtaining goods and services. The University Purchasing Card should only be used as a supplement for items that are not available through the Purchase Order process or in extreme emergencies.
Additional approvals are needed for:
TECHNOLOGY. All software, computer hardware, and consulting purchases must be reviewed and approved by Information Resources & Technology to ensure they are aligned with institutional priorities and that IRT can support them once activated. Requests for review can be made by filling out the IT Review and Acquisition Form at Self Service Banner, under the Finance Section. This policy applies to all members of the Rowan community who seek to acquire IT Resources using University funds, including University Purchasing Cards, grant funds from contracts and/or transmittal forms between the University and external funding sources (public and private).
TRAVEL. All travel necessary to conduct regular University business requires the prior approval of the employee's supervisor. A Request for Travel form must be properly completed and approved by the Department and Division Heads. The request should be routed to Accounts Payable for review by the Business and Ethics offices THREE WEEKS PRIOR to the trip.
