Jaime Gracia replied to the topic Should Gov’t Raise Credit Card (micropurchase) Limit? in the forum Acquisition, Contracting, Procurement 7 years, 1 month ago
Implementing this initiative not only makes sense, but would also go a long way to help improve small business goals, and expanding opportunities for small businesses and the use of simplified acquisition procedures.
With the recent Government Charge Card Abuse Prevention Act going into law, it will not be realistic. We can expect procurement officials to overreact, and take knee-jerk reactions to purchase card use my micro-managing these expenditures. I predict a significant drop in purchase card use in FY 2013 as a result, to the detriment of small businesses.
