Applying for a purchasing card
You will need your supervisor's approval to apply for a purchasing card.
To apply for a University purchasing card, three forms need to be completed.
The Flinders application form must be completed, initialled and signed by the applicant. The supervisor should also initial and sign where indicated. Finally, signed approval is required by the Authorised Officer.
The National Australia Bank Cardholder request form should be completed and signed by the applicant. The supervisor/line manager should also sign this form.
The Certificate of Identity form must be completed prior to the application being sent to the bank. This certificate requires the applicant to provide ID in person at the Accounts Office, or to have their ID certified by an approved certifier (listed on the form).
If coming in to the Accounts Office, please call either Jessica Harrison or Sara Szarek to arrange a suitable time.
If the applicant is not a Flinders University employee (e.g. a contracted employee or an academic with academic status), the Non-Employee form needs to be completed as well.
Once completed, all the forms can be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org for processing. The card will be ordered from NAB and will usually arrive within 5-10 business days. It will be forwarded via the internal mail or registered post (if not on campus). The PIN will be received a couple of days later and will be sent out separately.
