Frequently Asked Questions
What is a ProCard?
The ProCard empowers users, within approved limits, to procure authorized goods and services directly from vendors who accept MasterCard. The card can also be used to pay for authorized travel and entertainment expenses. For ProCard information go to Accounts Payable (new window) or email: firstname.lastname@example.org (new window)
What is a Master Agreement?
Master Service agreements are those entered into between Georgetown and a supplier that set out standard terms that control future transactions entered into between the parties. Each time that a transaction is entered into, the terms of the master service agreement do not need to be re-negotiated. Please note that master agreements are facilitated by procurement services, and can only be created, extended, re-negotiated, or otherwise amended by a member of the procurement services team.
