Vendor Opportunities Using PCard
University Purchasing has evaluated opportunities to leverage the overall expenses of the university. We are pleased to recommend Enterprise, LaQuinta and UPS as the preferred vendors for your business and personal needs.
Enterprise, LaQuinta, and UPS offer exceptional rates with a high level of service and convenience. These services are not just for ACU business but are also available for faculty, staff, alumni and student use. Since our pricing is based on overall volume, campus wide participation is necessary to achieve the maximum discount from this program. We encourage all departments to start utilizing these amazing programs.
Each of these services has provided a user friendly web link to utilize and process your applications right from your office desktop by using your credit card (ACU PCard or personal credit card). You can access these links by going to www.acu.edu/purchasing and clicking on the individual link of your choice.
Enterprise and LaQuinta have provided us with membership cards and directories that will provide the phone numbers and pass codes needed to take advantage of these benefits to you. Please notify University Purchasing at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 674-2246 for cards and directories.
We want to thank these companies for their generosity in contributing to our scholarship and endowment funds, as well as, offering ACU employees a corporate discount.
