Purchase Cards

The GSA SmartPay program is the world’s largest commercial payment solution program, servicing more than 560 federal agencies, organizations, and Native American tribal governments. Here are some important facts about how the FAA utilizes the GSA SmartPay purchase card:

  • The FAA uses the purchase card for nearly all micro-purchases ($10,000 or below) for commercial supplies, construction, and services.
  • Under the FAA’s Acquisition Management System (AMS) competition is not required for purchases of $10,000 or less.
  • On a yearly basis, the FAA performs over 150,000 transactions of $10,000 or less on the purchase card for more than $100 million, with nearly 40% of these dollars spent with small businesses.

 Accepting the Government purchase card is a great way for small businesses to break into the FAA marketplace, and maximize government sales.
