Purchasing

ProCard

The ProCard (departmental credit card) may be used for routine purchases of equipment or supplies. It cannot be used for food purchases at restaurants. Please email service@prc.utexas.edu to determine the best way to make a purchase and to sign out the ProCard. Also, please be sure to have a Texas State Sales Tax Exemption form to present to the vendor—the ProCard cannot be used to pay for taxes (the Department could lose its use of the ProCard if taxes are charged). Submission of receipts along with the account number or account description to be charged is required for each purchase made with the ProCard.  

UT policy regarding allowable ProCard purchases is available at ProCard Policies and Guidelines.

Office Supplies and Equipment

The University has a standing contract with Office Max/Office Depot and all purchases for office supplies must be made through UT Market.  Reimbursements for office supplies are unallowable and will not be approved. All computers, monitors, printers, and software must be purchased by the Department. These items cannot be reimbursed. Computers and any equipment over $500 purchased on UT funds are UT property and must be tagged for inventory even if purchased with research grant funds. 

Please email help@prc.utexas.edu if you wish to order computing equipment and supplies.

Business Cards

Business cards are available via UT Document Solutions. Please email service@prc.utexas.edu to place business card orders. Please include the account to be charged, your desired style
