Numerous newspaper articles and other reports echoing the issue highlighted by the preceding quote, coupled with other documents such as the Marine Corps’ semi-annual review of its Government-wide Commercial Purchase Card (GCPC) Program for the first half of fiscal year (FY) 2003, led the author of this article to review GCPC usage in the Marine Corps as the basis for a Naval Postgraduate School Master of Business Administration thesis. The following paragraphs are a summation of the analysis made in that thesis by the author and Lieutenant Colonel Robert J. Darling, USMC. Although the GCPC program has proven to be of tremendous value to the Department of Defense (DoD), it has also experienced high levels of fraud, waste, and abuse. Many of the difficulties DoD has experienced with the GCPC program are results of weaknesses in the program’s internal control environment. The recommendations in this article are offered as a means to improve that environment.
