    I want to know what items are qualified to be purchased for SHARP Program (Promotional items)? The qualified Promotional Items, what is the maximum unit price that can be purchase with Government Purchase Card (GPC)? Can GPC card be used to purchase SHARP Promotional items"?


    Answer

    The question addresses what promotional items can be purchased in support of the MWR SHARP Campaign (Sexual Harassment Assault Response Prevention).  The FAR does not address any specific programs on which funds can be used but simply methods under the regulations for the use.  As an agency unique program policies and procedures must be established by the agency to support this.  It is suggested to speak with your Contracting Officer and SHARP Program Manager for Agency procedures in support of this program.  See FAR reference:

     

    Subpart 13.3 - Simplified Acquisition Methods

    Parent topic: Part 13 - Simplified Acquisition Procedures

    13.301 Governmentwide commercial purchase card.or Agency

          (a) Except as provided in 32.1108(b)(2), the Governmentwide commercial purchase card is authorized for use in making and/or paying for purchases of supplies, services, or construction. The Governmentwide commercial purchase card may be used by contracting officers and other individuals designated in accordance with 1.603-3. The card may be used only for purchases that are otherwise authorized by law or regulation.

          (b) Agencies using the Governmentwide commercial purchase card shall establish procedures for use and control of the card that comply with the Treasury Financial Manual for Guidance of Departments and Agencies (TFM 4-4500) and that are consistent with the terms and conditions of the current GSA credit card contract. Agency procedures should not limit the use of the Governmentwide commercial purchase card to micro-purchases. Agency procedures should encourage use of the card in greater dollar amounts by contracting officers to place orders and to pay for purchases against contracts established under part  8 procedures, when authorized; and to place orders and/or make payment under other contractual instruments, when agreed to by the contractor. See 32.1110(d) for instructions for use of the appropriate clause when payment under a written contract will be made through use of the card.

          (c) The Governmentwide commercial purchase card may be used to-

               (1) Make micro-purchases;

               (2) Place a task or delivery order (if authorized in the basic contract, basic ordering agreement, or blanket purchase agreement); or

               (3) Make payments, when the contractor agrees to accept payment by the card (but see 32.1108(b)(2)).
