There were no Government Procurement Card transactions for the Department for Work and Pensions involving cash transactions from automated teller machines from 2006-07 to 2009-10.

It is not possible to withdraw cash using Government Procurement Cards as that particular Merchant Category Code is blocked by JP Morgan on all Department for Work and Pensions Government Procurement Cards.

Department for Work and Pensions policy states:

“There is NO cash withdrawal facility (via ATM or via “Cash back”) with any type of GPC account.”
