    Is bottled water a permissible purchase for a beverage at an awards ceremony honoring federal employees?


    Answer

    Your question concerning the purchase of bottled water for a civil servant's ceremony should be addressed to your Comptroller or the designee of the Comptroller that would certify funds to pay for the bottled water. The specific financial management regulations and guidance that govern purchases are normally agency specific and to my knowledge NIH does not follow the Department of Defense guidance.
