Disbursements: Payment Card Resources

AboutTexas A&M AgriLife offers departments/units an innovative program that simplifies the way in which goods/services are ordered and paid. The Payment Card Program is a fast, flexible purchasing method for processing delegated orders with suppliers who accept credit cards. The purpose of the Payment Card Program is to establish an efficient, cost-efficient, cost-effective method of purchasing and payment for delegated dollar transactions. This program has the potential to significantly reduce the FAMIS voucher process of small orders, checks, and prompt payment interest.
