Can I use appropriated funds to purchase items such as: sunblock/mosquito repellant?
The general rule is that these would be considered personal items and not something appropriated funds could be used to purchase. There have been exceptions made for foul weather gear in artic environments and protective clothing in HAZMAT situations, so unless you are willing to declare sunblock and mosquito repellant as safety items needed to protect human life and health, I would not use appropriated funds to buy the items.
