The Ministry of Defence does not issue credit cards, but the Department does use the Government Procurement Card (GPC) to purchase low value items and services up to the value of £5,000. The GPC is a purchasing/payment card and not a credit card. The number of recorded refunds to the Ministry of Defence for the deliberate misuse of GPCs in financial year 2011-12 is zero.
