Procurement Card

Welcome to the Florida Tech Procurement Card program. The card is one of the innovative methods Florida Tech has undertaken to acquire goods and services.

The Procurement Card program is the outcome of a work process initiated to design a procurement process that is simple and better serves the customer.

The Procurement Card is a VISA product administered by Bank of America. The Procurement Card has been implemented to provide individuals with a more efficient system for purchasing goods, services or travel. Florida Tech will issue just one payment each month for all Procurement Card purchases. Therefore, individuals do not have to and should not request reimbursement for any procurement card purchases.

The primary benefits of the system for individual users are:

  • acceptance by any supplier who accepts VISA;
  • more timely purchase and receipt of goods;
  • increased information about purchasing transactions;
  • improved supplier relations; and a reduction in paperwork.
  • for FIT travelers use of the card eliminates the need for T&E reimbursement

The Procurement Card for Faculty and Staff is administered by the Purchasing Group. The Procurement card program support team serves as your primary contact for questions or issues resulting from use of the card. You may contact them at:
