The focus of this thesis is to examine the use of the International Merchant Purchase Agreement Card (I.M.P.A.C.) as a small purchase procurement method in the United States Marine Corps. The primary intent is to determine whether the credit card has attained the objectives intended for it by the Marine Corps. It will identify the basic procedures involved in using the credit card, and will evaluate how Marine Corps users feel the card has affected their small purchase capabilities. It will analyze how buyers utilize the card, as well as examining how program officials have implemented the program throughout the Corps. In addition, this thesis will identify any benefits and drawbacks that card-holders and officials have encountered as a result of the card's implementation. Finally, recommendations on how the Marine Corps might improve its program will be offered. (KAR) P. 2.
