Purchasing Programs


PROCUREMENT CARD PROGRAM

The Procurement Card Program supplements the purchasing process by enabling users to purchase low dollar value items with a University-sponsored credit card.  The card, which is tied to a departmental budget account, has various features that allow for cost-effective transactions to be made.   You may apply for a card by completing a procurement card application in the Electronic Forms section of this website. 

After applying for a procurement card, you must attend a training session to familiarize yourself with card usage policies and procedures.  You will also be required to complete a Cardholder Agreement at this session.  The Procurement Card Program is handled by the Accounts Payable Department.

INTERIOR FURNISHINGS

The University has implemented a standard for design of all spaces including furniture, carpet and window treatment.  The Purchasing Department and the Manager of Office Design have established a design standard to assist you in selecting interior furniture and finishes.  Narrowing the selection of vendors and products allows the university increased buying power and a continuity of service.  We have carefully reviewed our standards to assure you of the finest quality and aesthetic value while striving for the most efficient use of your funds.  By adhering to a standard, the university community can also benefit from the exchange of furniture no longer needed by one department but usable within another standard office configuration.   We hope that you will find this an effective tool in making future selections for your department.  For further assistance with your project, you may contact the Manager of Office Design at 312-915-8782 or by e-mail at purchlsc@luc.edu.

LUCOMP (University Copier Fleet Program)

The LUCOMP, or University Copier Fleet Program, is administered by the Purchasing Department of the Administrative Services Division. Under this program, the University has contracted with a copier manufacturer to provide access to a new, state of the art, digital copier for Departmental use. Departments are charged a monthly equipment lease cost and for the copies that they produce on a month to month basis.

REDISTRIBUTION OF ASSETS PROGRAM

The Design Services unit administers the furniture disposal and reassignment program.  This program provides previously used furniture at no cost to the department.  The used furniture warehouse is managed by Administrative Services with delivery of furniture provided by the Facilities Department.  Items determined to be too obsolete for University reassignment are donated to area charities at the discretion of the Design Services Manager.

The Loyola University Chicago Purchasing department is pleased to offer the University Hotel Reservation Program for your use when traveling.

Offered through our partner, Hotels.com, this program makes booking hotel rooms (for personal and business use) quick and easy. We have reviewed the pricing on Hotels.com, and found it to be very competitive with other hotel booking Web sites, including Expedia, Priceline, etc.

Need help?

Clicking on the icon will provide you with an 800 number that can be used to contact a representative who can provide you with further assistance.

When using this program to make reservations for University business travel, you will be able to charge your room reservation to your Loyola University Chicago Procard. Your personal credit card can be used to book hotel reservations for non-business-related travel.
