Contract Summary

Commercial Card Solutions
This is a Naspo Contract

Contract #: 00612
Replaces: 03907 , 06507

The Commercial Card Solutions contract #00612 is a multi-state cooperative led by Washington State on behalf of and in collaboration with NASPO ValuePoint participating states.

Under the new contract #00612, US Bank offers a larger rebate for the Commercial Card category than the previous contract. The new Fleet Card category also offers a more attractive incentive share (rebate) than the previous Fleet Card contract.

The contract includes several types of charge cards but the purchasing card – a Visa card – is the one most frequently used by agencies to buy goods and services. Unlike a personal credit card where the cardholder can pay only a portion of the amount due, public agencies must pay the entire balance in full each month. Using charge cards to buy goods and services helps public agencies better manage their purchasing processes, while improving efficiency and transparency. In addition to receiving incentive shares (rebates), benefits include:
• Lower administrative costs by issuing one payment per month to cover all purchases instead of processing multiple purchase orders and payments.
• Better security because transactions can be monitored online almost immediately, rather than waiting for end-of-month invoices.
• Quicker payments to suppliers.

Available Card Types • One Card - Either plastic or “ghost” (no plastic) card intended as a method of payment for any expense as determined by the agency. This product may be used to make travel arrangements, or any goods and services allowed by the agency. Always Corporate Liability.
• Purchasing Card - Either a plastic or “ghost” (no plastic) card intended as a method of payment for goods and services either at the point of sale or to pay an invoice for goods or services.
• Declining Balance Card - Card product with an established limit that reduces as transactions occur. This type of product is always corporate liability.
• Travel Card - Card intended as a method of payment for travel expenses. This product may be used to make travel arrangements, or by the cardholder at the point of sale. Corporate Liability only.
• Fleet Card - Card product and services for purchasing fuel, maintenance, and roadside assistance. Fuel purchases may include gasoline, diesel, biodiesel, marine, aviation, and propane. The fleet card may also be used for electric vehicle charging stations. Corporate Liability.
