As a convenience to University departments, an arrangement with Sam’s Club has been established to enable departments to purchase food items.  Non-food items require pre-approval by a buyer in the Purchasing Department.

University Purchasing & Spending Policies should be reviewed prior to obligating University funds for purchases to ensure appropriate policies and procedures are followed.

Departments can pick up the Sam’s Club UA Membership Card from the front desk of the Procurement Services Building at 1500 Flint River Drive between the hours of 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.  The membership card must be returned to Procurement Services within 48 hours of checking out.

The preferred method of payment at Sam’s Club is the UA Purchasing Card.  Sam’s Club may require your assigned PIN number.  Please see the P-Card website for more information on your PIN number.
