Payment Card Program

FMO-Payment/Travel Card Office is delighted to offer to all Texas A&M University, Texas A&M University Galveston, Texas A&M University System Office, Texas A&M System Shared Service Center, Texas A&M Health Science Center  and Texas Division of Emergency Management (hereinafter called Member) an exciting, innovative program that simplifies the way in which you may order and pay for goods. The Payment Card Program is a fast, flexible purchasing method for processing delegated orders from suppliers that accept credit cards. The purpose of the Payment Card Program is to establish a more efficient, cost-effective method of the delegated purchasing and payment for delegated dollar transactions. If used to its potential, the program will result in a significant reduction in the data entry of small orders, receiving, invoices, vouchers and reduction in related documentation including invoices, checks and prompt pay interest. The Payment Card can be used with any supplier that accepts Master Card as a form of payment.

The payment Card program is designed to delegate the authority and capability to purchase limited items directly to the person to whom it most matters – YOU, the user. The payment card will enable you to purchase under your delegated authority non-restricted commodities directly from the vendors without the issuance of a purchase order.
