Managing University Purchases Via Credit Card Portfolio

Purchasing Services offers a credit card portfolio that supports a University-wide need to purchase and pay for required products and services. This diverse suite of cards may be used for purchasing options such as student activities, fuel and maintenance costs for vehicles and managing off campus meetings and events on behalf of Penn.

The Penn Community Credit Card Matrix shown below explains the purpose as well as best and prohibited uses of these credit cards.
