Department Credit Cards

The Bradley University Travel Card program has been established to provide a convenient means with which to make travel purchases and arrangements, and at the same time, reduce the costs associated with initiating and paying for these purchases. Employees traveling on a regular, recurring basis are encouraged to apply for a Bradley Travel card. Employees traveling out of the country MUST obtain a Bradley Travel card. Each cardholder must be pre-approved with determined monthly transaction limits. This card must be used for all pre-approved university related business travel, including conference registration, hotel, airline, rental car and gasoline. Meals should be charged on the card when possible, unless the employee has elected to take a per diem (international travel only). For all other travel, the University will reimburse a traveler for items paid personally after travel has taken place. Cardholders on University travel are subject to the travel policies and procedures as outlined in the Faculty Handbook and the Administrative Handbook. Additionally, many of the principles in the Bradley University Travel Expense Reimbursement and Procedures apply as well. Please contact the Purchasing department for an application to apply for a Bradley Travel card or to inquire on other options for payment of travel related expenses.

The Bradley University Procurement Card program has been established to provide a convenient means with which to make purchases, and at the same time, reduce the costs associated with initiating and paying for those purchases. The academic or administrative department is responsible for managing its cardholder’s accounts. Each cardholder must be pre-approved by the department chair, dean, or vice-president. The card is issued to a University employee for the purpose of making authorized purchases on the University’s behalf. The University will issue payment for charges made. The card can be used for subscriptions, web purchases, local purchases, and with companies who don’t take purchase orders. Please contact the Purchasing Department if you feel your department could benefit from having a Bradley Procurement card.
