I’m not saying it doesn’t happen. But taking a set of 20-30 folks to the US and staying in hotels? I’m sure that did happen, it’s just that I’m amazed a GPC wasn’t issued.No you don't; I have come across load of situations in both the MoD and the HO where a GPC would have been of enormous benefit, but the individual was expected to purchase it themselves and reclaim through expenses. In those circumstances, I do not see how the MoD could insist that you couldn't obtain loyalty points on your personal credit card.
The only time that I have ever held a GPC was as a Sqn 2IC when I was the Imprest Checking Officer. I did slap £10k on it once, but that was with the full authority of the Bde Comd via the DCOS.
If you use your own card and you’re reimbursed I still can’t see how you should be allowed to profit from being on duty?
Especially on this thread! Someone out there will know the rules I’m sure.
