Abstract : This thesis examines the impact on the purchase card program of increasing the Micro-purchase Threshold and Simplified Acquisition Threshold within the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act of 1994. A risk assessment will be conducted to compare purchase card programs of the respective Services within the Department of Defense. The thesis will emphasize the affect of the Federal Acquisition Streamlining Act of 1994 upon the management, policies, and procedures of the purchase card program. Moreover, barriers and possible difficulties in implementing the Simplified Acquisition Threshold within the purchase card program will be discussed. Lastly, recommendations will be proposed for successful implementation and guidance for using the General Services Administration Government-wide Commercial Purchase Card Program. (AN)
