Departmental credit card

Information about purchasing by the Informatics credit card

As per the University of Edinburgh purchasing policy, the primary method of purchasing goods or services for work is normally by raising UoE Purchase Orders through existing or new suppliers.

If there are circumstances when the University procurement routes offered are not appropriate, or card payment is the only available method, requisitioners can apply to use the departmental credit card below. It is expected that most applications will originate from the Informatics Procurement team. All requests for purchases of equipment/consumables must be made to that team initially.

Purchasers must ensure that each purchase transaction is supported by a receipt or VAT invoice. This is required for the monthly card statement reconciliation.

Budget holder approval must be sought before submitting this application.
