University Purchasing Cards
The Purchasing Department is tasked to obtain the best price and service for items that are purchased on behalf of the University. Rowan University receives various discounts from numerous vendors based on spending patterns and amounts that we are able to document. The use of personal and, to some extent, University purchasing cards voids/reduces discounts and may cause a problem with tax exempt purchases in New Jersey. In addition, the credit card purchasing information cannot be entered into the banner history system, may cause problems when dealing with vendors for discounts, and when reporting to the State for compliance. Therefore, all employees should use the Banner Finance System as your first choice for obtaining goods and services. The Purchasing Department offers a number of options for obtaining goods and services:
Although it is an option, 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.

Please send UPC Logs within 10 days of receiving the bank statement (no later than the 10th of the following month) to the Purchasing Department, 2nd Floor Memorial Hall.
