    Is the use of the Government Purchase Card authorized for purchasing retirement awards for civilian personnel, specifically plaques?


    Answer

    No. Appropriated funds may not be used for personal gifts unless there is statutory authority to do so. The source is a Comptroller General decision, 68 Comptroller General 226, 1989. Therefore, unless your agency has specific statutory authority to purchase retirement plaques, the answer is no.
