Most Experienced Government Payment Provider

U.S. Bank introduced the first purchasing card to the Federal Government during the mid-1980s. As the sole purchasing card provider in the IMPAC program (1988-1998), we’ve been a participant in the GSA SmartPay® Program (1998-2008) and the current GSA SmartPay2® Program (2008-2018). Our solutions, supported by the Visa, MasterCard and Voyager networks, have delivered efficient, low-cost payment processing for government agencies for nearly three decades.

U.S. Bank has a Schedule 70 designation, enabling agencies wishing to contract with U.S. Bank for transportation and freight payment services to do so. GSA Schedule 70 is also open to state and local government entities, K-12 school districts and higher education.
