Purchasing Card (P-card)

The NYU Purchasing Card, commonly referred to as a “P-Card,” is a tool offered to New York University employees who are responsible for procuring goods and services for their department. The P-Card is a University liability Master Card used for purchasing low-dollar items not available on i-Buy NYU; it has no effect on the cardholder’s personal credit. The P-Card provides University employees with a quick and convenient method of payment.

The P-Card may not be used for travel-related expenses.

The CTA card is used for business travel expenses for infrequent travelers in a department, individuals who do not have the Travel Card or personal credit card and University guests/visitors (i.e., job applicants, speakers). The CTA is a University liability card and does not impact the cardholder's personal credit.
