Georgia Tech’s Procurement Card (PCard) is a Visa purchasing card that may be used for authorized business purchases within the delegated authority limit.  The Pcard is a tool for purchases of non-equipment, business related items under $2,500 (for vendors who are not currently setup in BuzzMart or for vendors with whom we expect to only make one purchase).  Cardholders must follow State and Georgia Tech purchasing guidelines and strive to obtain the maximum ultimate value for each dollar of expenditure. Any vendor that accepts Visa will accept the PCard.


Georgia law requires vendors who provide services to Georgia Tech to provide an E-Verify affidavit under certain conditions. This page provides helpful information for vendors concerning E-Verify, and also for Georgia Tech personnel for determining the E-Verify status of vendors.
