How to arrange a purchase using a card

All requests must be made to the department's cardholder using the authorisation form before the transaction can be made.

The above form requires an authorised signatory and an activity code. You can check who the Authorised Signatory is for your code (including Research/Project codes) by using the Online Checker.

Cardholder Guidance

The card is not a physical credit card, only a bank letter with the card details so cannot be presented for purchase. It can only be used on-line or over the phone.
