Procurement Credit Card Guide

Introduction

Welcome to the Wentworth Institute of Technology Procurement Credit Card Program provided by J.P MorganChase. The procurement card is a purchasing tool that offers an alternative to the Wentworth Purchase Order or the Direct Pay method used to purchase and pay for goods and services with a value of less than $1,000.

This user guide outlines the benefits of the program to you, your department and the Institute, and provides you with information needed to use the card. The procurement credit card concept is designed to delegate authority and capability, to quickly and conveniently purchase approved commodities directly from vendors that accept the MasterCard credit card.
