Harvard Credit Card Services administers the University payment card programs. The University offers two payment card options for eligible faculty and staff who travel or purchase goods and services on behalf of their department, the Purchasing Card (PCard) and a Corporate Card.
Harvard Purchasing Cards ("PCards") are University-liability credit cards issued in the names of authorized, trained individuals to purchase certain eligible goods and services in support of Harvard University business.
The Corporate Card is the primary payment method for travel expenses incurred by Harvard employees. Paid employees who take at least three business trips per year and/or incur entertainment expenses of $5,000 or more per year are strongly encouraged to apply for a corporate card.
