Fleet Fuel Card Program

The Fleet Fuel Card Program is to be used for authorized fuel and maintenance costs associated with operating a University owned vehicle. It is not for personal use. Full liability for payment rests with the University. It is the responsibility of the cardholder to use the card appropriately. The card will ensure that the University captures its tax exempt status and related cost savings while maintaining and fueling our vehicle fleet. Mandatory biennial refresher training sessions are required to retain one’s fleet card.

The Fleet Card complements the BEN Buys Purchasing System, the University’s primary authorized buying method. As such, the Fleet Card can only be used for fuel and maintenance for University owned vehicles. At no time is a Fleet Card cardholder permitted to use their fleet card for personal purchases. Use of a Fleet Card is a privilege granted by the University, and as such, will be revoked and disciplinary action taken in the event of abuse, inappropriate or fraudulent use, or failure to perform required cardholder administrative duties.
