Travel and Procurement Cards


Tufts University provides full-time employees with two types of credit cards for purchasing business-related goods: The Procurement Card (PCard) and the Tufts Travel MasterCard.

Procurement Card

The Procurement Card (PCard) is a credit card that should be used for purchases of non-restricted commodities (excluding travel expenses) up to $5,000 from any supplier that accepts MasterCard.

Tufts Travel Card

The Tufts Travel Card is a credit card that must be used for travel-related expenses, such as hotel bookings, rental cars, and meals, as well as conference registrations.

Each cardholder is also required to have access to e-Expense in order to reconcile charges. Access to e-Expense is granted as part of the Travel Card application.
