GSA: What's new in payment cards?

December 10, 2014

The General Services Administration is preparing for a third generation of its SmartPay program and is asking industry about current best practices for payment and charge cards.

The program currently serves some 350 agencies and organizations in managing payment cards for purchasing office supplies, travel accommodations and fleet transactions. Agencies spent approximately $26 billion in 2014 using cards, saving $1.7 billion compared to the cost of submitting paper purchase orders.
