10 Meeting Objectives To update you on the GSA SmartPay program, the transition to GSA SmartPay 3 (SP3), and how the transition will impact [Agency Name] To obtain your support for [Agency Name] transitioning to SP3 11 GSA SmartPay Program Overview Established in 1998, the GSA SmartPay program provides government agencies with commercial charge cards and payment solutions through Master Contracts The period of performance for the current GSA SmartPay 2 (SP2) Master Contracts is not to exceed 10 years (base

[insert #] [insert #] [insert #] 14 GSA SmartPay Program Benefits This is the largest program of its kind in the world: The program provides service to over 560 federal agencies, organizations, and Native American tribal governments Program-wide, in FY 16, over 91.7 million purchase, travel and fleet transactions were processed through 3.3 million GSA SmartPay accounts Total program spend in FY 16 was over $28.5 billion As a result of its size, the GSA SmartPay program has

leverage to drive innovation and achieve economies of scale 15 GSA SmartPay Program Benefits In FY 16 the government-wide GSA SmartPay program provided the framework for the following agency benefits: $290.2 million in refunds to the agencies based on sales volume and payment performance $1.3 billion in estimated annual administrative processing cost avoidance for purchase cards alone Other government-wide program benefits include: Acceptance of the cards worldwide A wide range of innovative payment solutions (e.g. virtual accounts,

single-use accounts) that provide agencies with flexibility to make payments above and beyond traditional plastic cards. An improved payment process that allows fully automated invoicing and payment processing 16 Agency Specific Benefits In FY 16, [Agency Name] received a total refund of $ [Insert] Under SP3, refunds are calculated based on spend volume of each agency/organization (i.e. sales) Refunds are separated into three groups: standard transactions, large ticket transactions, and epayables transactions Each transaction type has a minimum required sales refund at the master contract level.

billing cycle, and speed of pay information 17 Agency Specific Benefits [Agency Name] also saved a total of $[Insert = 69.83 x # of purchase card transactions] in administrative processing for purchase card transactions Administrative cost avoidance is calculated by multiplying $69.83 by the total number of purchase card transactions; in its 2014 purchase card study, RPMG Research estimated $69.83* as the per transaction administrative cost avoidance for using the purchase card versus traditional procurement methods.

Transition to GSA SmartPay 3 The existing GSA SmartPay 2 (SP2) Master Contracts end November 29, 2018 New Master Contracts for SP3 will: Be awarded during the summer or fall of 2017, allowing agencies close to 18 months to transition Include a four-year base period and three three-year option periods Agency option periods need not be tied to the options exercised at the Master Contract-level, however, agency option periods cannot exceed the limits of the Master Contracts 19 Transition to GSA SmartPay 3 Transactions under the new SP3 contract cannot begin before November 30, 2018

Once all new system interfaces have been developed and tested (if any), cards issued, and users trained on any new processes, transactions can begin under the new contract 20 GSA SmartPay Transition Timeline 21 How Transition Affects [Agency Name] All agencies will need to award new task orders under the new Master Contracts, even if the incumbent Contractor(s) is/are selected again. Transition activities will include: Defining [Agency Name]s program needs Issuing new charge cards to account holders Determining the appropriate task order type(s) based on

our needs Standard (same as Master Contract) Tailored (including agency-specific requirements) Tag-along, using another agencys task order Join a pool, to develop a task order to meet multiple agencies needs 22 How Transition Affects [Agency Name] Transition activities will also include: Preparing and awarding [Agency Name]s task order(s) Working with the incoming and outgoing Contractor(s) to prepare to begin processing transactions

Issuing new charge cards to account holders Cleansing and migrating data from the current contractor to the new contractor Establishing and testing system interfaces Communicating changes to stakeholders (e.g., cardholders, billing personnel) and conducting training 23 Suggested Transition Milestones [Agency Name]s new task order(s) must be in place, and the Contractor(s) ready to process transactions no later than November 30, 2018 To ensure ample time to transition from the current Contractor to the new Contractor: We recommend that we target [Date] for task order award, and that Transactions begin under the new contract on [Date]

24 Transition Management Team GSA recommends that agencies designate their own Transition Management Team (TMT) to support the move to the new task order(s) The TMT would be responsible for: Developing a project plan and milestones Analyzing options and making recommendations (e.g., task order type) Coordinating the definition of agency needs and development, negotiation, and award of the new task order(s) Managing logistics, including issuance of new charge cards, coordinating the integration of contractor systems with existing agency infrastructure, providing training to account holders, etc. Identifying and securing support for necessary resources in a

timely manner 25 Additional Resources In addition to the dedicated TMT resources, additional budget and/or resources may be needed to support: Systems migration and testing (particularly if switching contractors) User Training (e.g., on new or modified EAS) Administering two task orders concurrently The chart on the following page shows an estimate of the budget and FTE resources required to support the transition 26 Additional Resources Budget Estimate for Additional Resources

Provide training and guidance on transition planning tools Provide guidance and assist with questions on developing task order documents and Statements of Work 28 How the Center for Charge Card Management Will Help Coordinate GSA Tag and Pool arrangements Post the SP3 Master Contract and Transition Tools on the GSA SmartPay website Provide transition training sessions at the GSA SmartPay Conference Provide virtual transition training sessions Assist agencies/organizations with questions and track progress throughout the transition process 29

Why We Need Your Input There are several areas where agency Executives need to make decisions or provide support to facilitate the transition: Will [Agency Name] provide support/resources required for a Transition Management Team (TMT)? Are the resources needed to support the transition available? What task order type will [Agency Name] use (i.e., standard, tailored, join a pool or tag along with another agency)? 30
