Section 2: PURCHASE REQUIREMENTS
Reference: CAM 1313.301 Purchase Card Manual 3.9.3, Federal Appropriations Law Restrictions, in accordance
with Principles of Federal Appropriations Law, which limits the purchase of generally prohibited items (wearing
apparel) from purchase with appropriated funds.
The general rule is that clothing is a personal expense (“every employee of the Government is required to present
himself for duty properly attired according to the requirements of his/her position”). However, 5 U.S.C. §7903
provides that appropriated funds available for the procurement of supplies and materials or equipment are
available for the purchase of “special clothing and equipment” for the protection of personnel in the performance
of their assigned tasks. In order for the employee to purchase special clothing and equipment, the following three
criteria must be met:
1) The clothing or equipment must be “special” or “necessary” as opposed to an
YES
NO
item the employee may reasonably be expected to provide for himself/herself.
2) The items must be for the benefit of the Government.
YES
NO
3) The employee must be engaged in hazardous duty, or performing an activity
YES
NO
that requires specified safety gear or uniform requirement.
Be advised that any of the special items purchased are Government property and must therefore be returned to
the agency when not in use.
If the proposed purchase of clothing or equipment does not meet all three of the above criteria, the employee
shall obtain approval from their servicing Agency Program Coordinator (APC) prior to making the purchase. The
APC will seek approval from the Chief of the Bank Card Center, the Office of General Counsel, and the Head of
Contract Office as required pursuant to CAM 1313.301, paragraph 3.9.3., Federal Appropriations Law Restrictions.
If the proposed purchase of clothing or equipment does meet all three criteria, approval from the APC is not
required and authorization may be issued by the employee’s supervisor.
