Compressed gas purchasing restrictions with P-Card

Certain compressed gases are no longer allowable purchases with a P-Card. Any compressed gas that exhibits additional hazardous characteristics such as flammability, corrosivity, toxicity or strong oxidizing properties must be purchased through UGA Mart. See list of gases prohibited from P-Card purchases. Compressed gases such as nitrogen, carbon dioxide, inert gases and cryogenics are allowable purchases with a P-Card.

The Research Safety Committee and the Office of Procurement collaborated on this effort to better track the quantity of hazardous compressed gases on campus.

For additional information, please see the updated P-Card Manual or the P-Card Quick Reference Sheet.
