The p-card is a purchasing tool that allows DCPS to make low cost purchases using a government credit card. Cardholders can make individual purchases of up to $5,000 for goods, $2,500 for services, and $2,000 for construction. Some purchases are restricted or require prior authorization. Those include food, catering, computers (laptops, desktops, & tablets), and entertainment. Vendors should receive payment information at the time of purchase or be able to authorize the card prior to providing services.
Questions related to the p-card should be directed to [email protected] or to (202) 442-5112.
