Corporate Card Application (call 346-3158 for application)
Corporate Card Insurance
The University of Oregon is pleased to introduce the U.S. Bank Visa Corporate Travel Card Program. The card will be embossed with your name and the University of Oregon logo which identifies it as a company issued charge card. The U.S. Bank Visa Corporate Travel Card can be used for all reimbursable business expenses and is not intended as a means of personal credit. You will be responsible for all charges that are made on the card and it has to be paid in full each month. This is NOT a revolving charge account. The objectives of the Corporate Travel Card Program are twofold. First, to provide UO employees with the added convenience, security, and flexibility while traveling on business. Second, to reduce travel and administrative costs.
You are eligible to apply for this card if you are a regular University of Oregon employee and have at least .5 FTE. Send your completed application to the Travel office. It will be checked and forwarded to US Bank. You will receive your card in the mail within 7-10 business days. You will remain eligible for this card as long as you remain a regular UO employee, and your account is in good standing with US Bank. If your employment with the UO is terminated for any reason you will have to relinquish the card immediately.
Insurance coverage provided by the Central Travel System (CTS) card and corporate travel card (not the procurement card) covers $500,000 for death, and lower amounts for dismemberment, and $1,500 lost luggage in addition to airline payment. Oregon worker's compensation covers employees on the job (ORS 656.204). Death benefits vary depending on marital status, spouse working, number and ages of children, salary. Disability coverage is also offered.
There is also ATM access available on these cards so you can have cash available for your travel needs. Shortly after you receive your card, you will be issued a Personal Identification Number. You will receive a letter approximately one month later that will allow you to self-select your own Personal Identification Number if you so choose.
Lost or Stolen Cards
Cardholders are responsible for notifying U.S. Bank immediately by calling 1-800-344-5696 of any loss, theft, or unauthorized use of their card. Cardholders are also responsible for notifying the UO Program Administrator at 346-3158.
Cardholders are expected to maintain financial responsibility with regard to use of the Corporate Travel Card. An account is considered delinquent if the total payment due is not remitted before the next billing date. The balance indicated on your monthly statement is due in full by the next billing cycle. Your card will be suspended at 60 days past due and canceled at 90 days if payment in full has not been received. The U of O does receive reports on past-due accounts.
When you receive your card you will need to contact U.S. Bank at 1-800-344-5696 to activate the card. All cards will be mailed out dead to prevent fraud. You will need to give your Social Security number for card activation.
Upon receipt of your card, please read all correspondence from U.S. Bank for a clear understanding of the corporate card program. If you have questions call the program administrator at 346-3158.
