purchasing   /  UAB Purchasing Card (P-Card) Program

The UAB Purchasing Card (P-Card) program is designed to be a flexible form of payment that permits UAB employees to place orders for allowable purchases.  The policies and procedures governing the UAB P-Card program are designed to protect both the P-Card user and the University.  Participation in the UAB P-Card program is considered a privilege and all P-card users are expected to adhere to established policies and procedures.

UAB offers two P-Card types. P-Card requests for both types are made using the P-Card Application and Agreement form.

  • Individual
    • Issued in the UAB employee's name
    • May only be used by the cardholder
  • Organization
    • Issued in the UAB organization's name
    • Responsible cardholder manages use of the card within the UAB organization

Changes to the P-Card including responsible cardholder (organization card), proxy addition/deletion, credit limit increases, single transaction limit increases, international authorization, etc. are requested using the P-Card Account Maintenance Form.

Regions Intersect - UAB utilizes Regions Intersect for card management including the review (proxy) and approval (approver) of all P-Card transactions. Additional information including user account setup, system navigation, etc. may be found here.
