The General Services Administration has asked for industry feedback on commercial payment services and best practices for charge card usage.

GSA issued a request for information to develop the third iteration of the SmartPay program for government-wide payment and charge card system, the agency said Thursday.

The agency wants industry recommendations on the future of payments industry, waste reduction services, fraud and abuse reduction, payment security, data and new commercial payment systems.

“FAS is looking forward to adding even more value to the payment products and services we offer our government agency customers by working with our industry partners to evolve this program to an even higher level of performance and support,” said Tom Sharpe, GSA’s Federal Acquisition Services commissioner.

Federal agencies and organizations use the GSA SmartPay program to process purchases via traditional charge cards, as well as virtual and single-use accounts.
