The Citibank VISA Procurement Card Program offers the State University of New York campuses an alternate procurement method when making purchases that cost $2,500 or less. The program is intended to afford SUNY campuses an opportunity to reduce the time between requesting, ordering and receiving of goods. Additionally, the Procurement Card program reduces the volume of accounts payable transactions and the associated administrative costs by consolidating multiple vendor payments into one monthly voucher payment to the Office of the State Comptroller. Procurement cards are typically issued at the assistant level to ensure multiple approval levels within departments. Operation of the SUNY program follows the basic New York State Procurement Card guidelines as established by the Office of General Services.
