Barnes & Noble, Sodexo Catering and Amazon Business – 2/10/2017
The Procurement Card (PCard) office is pleased to announce the following changes, effective immediately, to the PCard program:
- Barnes and Noble – Purchases at Barnes and Noble or online through the Aggie Office Supplies website can now be made with the NMSU PCard. With this change, the purchase of equipment greater than $1,000 (less than $3,000) at Barnes and Noble will be allowed on the procurement card. The PCard office will work with the department to fulfill the tagging requirements for these equipment purchases.
- Sodexo Catering – Catering services provided by Sodexo will now be charged to the NMSU PCard. Upon placing your order with Sodexo you will need to provide a PCard number for billing purposes. This change will shorten the billing timeframe and allow employees the ability to allocate expenses through the Wells Fargo CCER reconciliation process.
- Amazon Business – NMSU has established an Amazon Business account which will simplify the purchasing process to enable the university to take advantage of the wide selection and competitive prices of the Amazon marketplace. NMSU will have the advantage of free two-day shipping without having to pay for individual memberships. Current Amazon accounts will need to be converted to a new business account. Additional information on this process and a personal invitation will be provided to cardholders in the upcoming weeks.

New Account Code – 03/15/2016
A new account code, NMGRT – Goods (760905), has been established to capture the tax paid with the PCard on exempt goods. These transactions should still be coded as Decline Sales Tax in the CCER system. Select your departmental index and account code 760905 for processing. This account code should be monitored for receipt of the credits/reimbursements which offset the tax incurred.
