Transmittal Notice 13-06

TN 13-06


The purpose of this Transmittal Notice (TN) is to transmit a copy of Part 5, Chapter 23, "Government-wide Commercial Purchasing Card," Indian Health Manual (IHM).  This chapter revises and updates the policy, procedures, and responsibilities for the Indian Health Service (IHS) Purchase Card program.  There are several types of charge cards authorized for use by Federal agencies to reduce transaction costs and administrative burden for certain categories of requirements.  The IHS uses the Government-wide Commercial Purchase Card (GCPC) for micro-purchases and other transactions authorized by regulation to the maximum extent consistent with the requirements and limitations of IHS accounting and property management procedures.  Additionally, the IHS uses Travel Cards for travel and transportation expenses by authorized individuals on official business and uses the GCPC for purchase of goods and services by individuals with delegated acquisition authority.
