There are two separate purchasing cards in use by Scottish Government staff: Government Procurement Cards, issued to designated staff in business areas where there is a need to make low value, non-recurring purchases; and Travel and Subsistence Charge Cards, issued to staff required to travel and stay overnight away from home on a regular basis according to official business need.

Cards are allocated to staff on a rigorous and systematic basis and the use made of the cards is kept under regular review.
