The ProCard is a Visa purchasing card available for faculty and staff who make a high volume of purchases.

The Procurement Card is confined to UW business purchases only, and must never be used for personal expenditures or UW travel related purchases. Cardholders are responsible for obtaining sufficient documentation and performing the first level of transaction review at their PaymentNet account. Receipts, food forms, email showing budget approvals need to be provided.

The ProCard should be used only by the person to whom the card is issued (the cardholder). Do not lend your card to be used by someone else as they are not authorized.

Reimbursement (non-travel)

This form is used to reimburse individuals for purchases of goods and services they have made on behalf of the UW.

Reimbursements are for rare occasions when other procurement methods are not an option. Seeking reimbursement for UW purchases of goods and services made with personal funds should be done only as a last resort.

All individuals seeking or approving reimbursements should be familiar with our “what’s not allowed to be charged.”

As with other procurement methods, you must have prior approval. Receipts, food forms, email showing budget approvals need to be provided.

Travel Reimbursement

This form is to be used to reimburse someone for business related travel expenses. Before a trip, the traveler should:

  • understand your responsibilities
  • obtain approval(s)
  • review guidelines when personal time/travel is combined with UW business
  • review limits on type of expenses and receipt guidelines
  • check with your department for additional travel requirements

When in doubt, contact your department prior to your trip.

UW Food Approval Form

Under certain criteria University and Washington State policies allow for the purchase of meals and light refreshments for employees, students and official guests. Many UW budgets are either not approved for food, or have restrictions.

Use the food approval form for one-time or recurring events requiring food purchases only for events meeting these criteria:

  • Recognition events
  • Training events, including student orientations
  • Business meetings to conduct UW business where a meal or light refreshment is an integral part of the official meeting

CEE Attendance Sheet

This form is required for use when meals or refreshments are provided at events. This form will accompany the UW Food Approval form.

UW Club Card

The CEE Club Card is available for use by Faculty and staff. The Card can be checked out by request. Please check the club’s website for service times and remember the following:

  • Complete the Card Usage form at the time you pick up the card making sure to list those in attendance and provide a budget number.
  • Return the card, attendance sheet and the receipt to Jim Anderson in More 201

Delegation of Authority Procedure

The UW has set minimum standards whereby a Principal Investigator (PI) may appropriately delegate the authority to conduct some fiscal procedures, such as initiating and approving the purchase of goods and/or services, to support a particular activity. University policy, with regards to sponsored project funding, is found in Grants Information Memorandum 2 (GIM 2).

Attached below are CEE’s procedures for delegation of authority for fiscal/expenditure activity, in compliance with University of Washington policies, as well as the Delegation of Authority Form template to complete and send to the Administrator for record keeping. Without delegation of authority on file, PIs are the only persons authorized to conduct fiscal procedures on their budgets.
