Communications from US Bank - 12/6/18 Users of the Commercial Card Services contract (#00612) may be receiving a piece of certified mail from US Bank (the current vendor) which includes an ‘opt out’ letter to sign and return if choosing to no longer be a part of the rebate program. This letter was sent out by the vendor with no prior knowledge to DES and may be misleading or confusing. If received, please do not sign. If you have any questions about this letter or the services under the Commercial Card Services contract, do not hesitate to contact Roni Field at 360.407.7949 or veronica.field@des.wa.gov.


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

Under this contract, US Bank offers a larger incentive share (rebate) for the Pcard and One Card programs than the previous contract, however, an incentive share (rebate) is not offered on the Commercial (travel) card program.

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 share (rebate)s, 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.
