PCard Program


The University of Maine Purchasing Card (PCard) Program is designed to improve efficiency in processing purchases of low dollar value. The PCard is a VISA credit card and can be used to make purchases with any merchant that accepts Visa (including on-campus sites such as the Bookstore and Computer Connection) unless such a purchase is restricted by University policy. Many suppliers with whom you currently use a purchase order will accept the PCard.

To join the PCard program:

  • Read the PCard Manual, APL Section VII-C and OMB Circular A-110
  • A Department Entry Form (one per department) must be  completed and signed by the department head – This form must accompany the first Cardholder Application for a department or be completed after any departmental changes
  • A Cardholder Application must be filled out for each new cardholder
  • Send the completed forms to Leota Arsenault in the Purchasing Department, 5765 Service Building
