An automated reconciliation program is a valuable tool in facilitating Department of the Navy (DoN) purchase card operations. The Express Purchase (XP) Program was designated as an interim solution to meet DoN's needs for automating the Purchase Card Program. The Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) at Monterey, California was chosen as one of many beta-test sites to assess XP. Funding for the XP program was terminated, but NPS pursued with the implementation of the system. This thesis analyzes the purchase card process at NPS and NMC San Diego; analyzes the payment methods deployed at each facility; and compares the payment histories of DoN, NPS, and NMC San Diego. Data were obtained by conducting personal interviews, examining Department of Defense (DoD) policies, and reviewing historical payment statistics at NPS, NMC San Diego, and Naval Supply Systems Command (NAVSUP). Fully compatible with XP and in compliance with DoD regulations, NPS employed the transactional payment method, streamlining many of the critical tasks in the program. The XP system proved to be a highly efficient and labor saving tool, resulting in reduced payment delinquencies and expedited payment processing.
