Can the GPC card be use to lease a fork lift?
The total amount of the forklift lease would have to be at or below the Department of Defense micro-purchase threshold (MPT) for the charge(s) to be allowable. As a cardholder, you would be obligating the Government to pay the full amount of the lease agreement. If broken down into daily/weekly/monthly payments the transactions could be viewed as a split purchases if the total exceeds the MPT. Split purchases are prohibited. It is suggested that you contact your Agency/Organization Program Coordinator or Resource Manager prior to leasing the item.
