GSA SmartPay®

New SmartPay 2 Charge Cards designs at top

The GSA SmartPay® 2 program provides charge cards to U.S. government agencies/departments, as well as tribal governments, through master contracts that are negotiated with major national banks. There are currently over 350 agencies/organizations participating in the program spending $30 billion annually, through 100 million transactions on over three million cards.

In June 2007, the Office of Charge Card Management awarded the GSA SmartPay® 2 master contracts to Citibank, JP Morgan Chase, and U.S. Bank. Through these contracts, agencies can obtain a number of different types of charge card products and services to support their mission needs, including:

  • Purchase Cards: For purchasing general supplies and services;
  • Travel Cards: For travel expenses related to official government travel (airline, hotel, meals, incidentals);
  • Fleet Cards: For fuel and supplies for government vehicles; and
  • Integrated Cards: Two or more business lines (card types) whose processes are integrated into one card.

Most agencies have transitioned to the new GSA SmartPay 2 cards on November 29, 2008; however, DHS (except the DHA-OIG's office) will continue to use the GSA SmartPay 1 charge cards until they transition in February 2009.

Qualified agencies/organizations that are interested in obtaining charge card services can issue a task order under the master contract, and receive offers from the charge card providers.
