The purpose of this research project was to analyze the impact of the Army’s request to transfer the Army Government Purchase Card (GPC) program in Japan from the Army’s to the Air Force’s reporting and processing hierarchies. The governing directive for the realignment, the Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) between the Pacific Air Forces (PACAF) and the Army Contracting Agency, Pacific Region (ACA-PR), was examined. The proper procurement authority for the Army GPC program was also reviewed. The advantages and disadvantages of the two available realignment options were compared to ascertain the most viable course of action to process the transfer. The local GPC procedures affected by the transformation were also analyzed to determine systems capabilities, effect on personnel workload, and compliance with mandatory Army, Air Force, and DOD GPC procedures. This research project demonstrated the need for the realignment of the Army GPC program in Japan. It is recommended that the most viable option for the realignment is to approve a waiver to retain the Army’s financial systems and payment procedure when the Army GPC program transfers to the Air Force’s processing and reporting hierarchies.
