KU Research Procurement Card

KU Research offers Visa Procurement Cards (KUCR Pcards) to eligible KU Faculty and staff to assist in their research purchasing needs.

  • All KUCR Pcards are assigned to a KUCR default non-grant account. For KUCR expenses, default cost centers should be a departmental or investigator F&A return cost center or other non-grant cost center (e.g. royalty account, service account, etc.) KUCR Pcards cannot be linked directly to a grant.
