Purchasing card

The UN Procurement Practitioner's Handbook, produced by the Interagency Procurement Working Group (IAPWG) in 2006 and updated in 2012 defines a purchasing card as: ‘A payment method wherby requisitioners are empowered to deal directly with suppliers for low-dollar, high-frequency purchases by using a credit card issued by a bank or major credit card provider. The cards reduce paperwork and enable purchasing and accounts payable personnel to focus on more value-added activities.’
