The current Vanderbilt University card program is a U.S. Bank issued, MasterCard branded, corporate pay-corporate liability, credit card that enables authorized employees to use the card for approved business-related expenses. Payment Cards are the preferred payment method of most business related travel and small dollar purchases of goods and limited services.
Payment cards are not intended to replace or bypass any existing department’s purchasing methods through eProcurement or other procurement methods already established. Note that items purchased on the One Card that normally are purchased through eProcurement, will not receive contract pricing and should be discussed with the Procurement office prior to any purchases in question. Cardholders should also reference Procurement’s Gold Guide to identify approved suppliers and appropriate payment methods.
