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.
