PPP26 UW-Madison Purchasing Card Program

Effective 04/18/14
Replaces 6/12/06


The UW-Madison Purchasing Card is a VISA card, issued through US Bank, which is made available to employees by UW-Madison Business Services. It is designed to replace Low Dollar, Best Judgment Purchase Orders and Blanket Orders. It may also be used for internal services and supplies if the UW-Madison provider accepts the card.


All UW-Madison employees who currently rely on Best judgment Requisitions or Blanket Orders to obtain required services and supplies are eligible to apply for a card. Enrollment in the program is contingent upon approval by the respective Department Chair and Dean’s Office. Single transaction and monthly spending limits vary, depending on the individual cardholder, their Department and Dean’s Office. Individual transactions may not exceed the current low dollar transaction amount of $5,000.


If your Department is not currently enrolled in the UW-Madison Purchasing Card Program, contact your Dean’s Office for approval. Further details on the program and the required enrollment forms are available. If you have questions please contact Meghann Grove at (608) 262-3300 meghann.grove@wisc.edu
