Loyola University Chicago


Purchasing Programs


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 complete a required online 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 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.

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 program 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.
