Exclusion of acquisitions made using Government of Canada acquisition cards
The Ineligibility and Suspension Policy excludes any acquisition, regardless of dollar value, made using a Government of Canada acquisition card.
Acquisition cards are defined as:
“a charge card issued under a contract between a card issuer and Canada for the procurement and payment of goods and services for authorized official government business.”
Objective of exclusion
This risk-based approach excludes routine expense items for standard maintenance, repair and operational goods and services that are typically low dollar value.
