Purchasing Cards

We offer the Purchasing Card (P-Card) Program to State and Local governmental entities within the State of Georgia.

Our P-Card Program provides a flexible payment mechanism for the acquisition of goods and services within established guidelines.

Our P-Card Program offers several advantages:

  • Enables cardholders to initiate transactions quickly and easily in person, by telephone, or via the internet, promoting prompt delivery of goods and services.
  • Streamlines payment and purchasing procedures.
  • Reduces the administrative burden traditionally associated with small dollar value purchases.
  • Allows State and local governmental entities better controls and insights over spend.
  • Provides more accountability through consistent and timely reconciliation processes and electronic management controls.

Our P-Card Program is honored by all suppliers who accept VISA, and there are no annual, transaction, or reporting fees for participating governmental entities.
