University of Colorado Acquisition Card Project: A Successful Partnership of Program, Process, and Systems


The University of Colorado was offered and accepted the opportunity to pilot a procurement card program for small dollar purchases. A partnership was formed of users from academic and administrative departments as well as key players from Buying and Contracting and Accounts Payable.

This paper describes the project, which was in full swing by the fall of 1996.
