LaCarte Purchasing Card

LaCarte Purchasing Card “LaCarte” is a credit card issued to authorized employees for the purpose of making low dollar purchases.

LaCarte is intended to simplify your buying process and improve your cycle time from ordering to payment. Typical examples of items that may qualify for this program include books, computer accessories, materials, and supplies.

Departments are reminded that the LaCarte Card is a payment method and departments must evaluate their procurement needs as a whole to make sure LaCarte is the appropriate purchasing and payment method.

For procurement needs greater than $5,000 ($10,000 if Delegated Purchasing Agent), splitting invoices to stay under the $5,000/$10,000 per day limit is against the University procurement rules and will require you to use private funds for anything over the initial $5,000/$10,000 if deemed a split purchase. If in doubt, refer to the Procurement Services website, Splitting Purchases under the A-Z listing, or contact Procurement Services.

The LaCarte Card should not be used for equipment purchases or professional, specialty and consulting services.

For complete details as well as information on how to apply, view "LaCarte Procurement Card Program" on the Accounts Payable and Travel website.
