Purchasing Department Overview

The North Carolina Central University (NCCU) procurement card (P-Card) is essentially a standard Visa card in which the credit liability rests with the University instead of the individual cardholder. (This is different from the American Express travel card, in which the liability is solely the cardholder's.) The P-Card is issued to a NCCU employee empowering this person to purchase goods, services on behalf of the University. This program has been established to allow rapid purchase of low dollar goods and services while simultaneously reducing paperwork and handling costs associated with the small purchase process.

Under no circumstance may this Visa card be used for personal purchases. All expenditures must be within the allotted budget limits with funds in place before expenditures are made.

For any questions please contact your P-Card administrator at purchasing@nccu.edu or by phone at 919-530-6329.
