GSA finds feds pay SmartPay bills on time

Almost all government employees who hold SmartPay credit cards have been paying their bills on time, the General Services Administration found in its most recent delinquency report.

GSA's figures for the month of June showed that the National Science Foundation was tops, with no employee accounts overdue by more than 61 days. GSA operates the SmartPay credit card program for Defense Department and civilian agencies.

GSA spokeswoman Deborah Ruiz said only 1 percent of card accounts were overdue by more than 61 days at the Health and Human Services, Justice and Labor departments; the Federal Emergency Management Agency; the Nuclear Regulatory Commission; NASA; and the Small Business Administration.

Defense, which recently came under congressional fire for misuse of its 1.8 million cards [see www.gcn.com/vol1_no1/daily-updates/4741-1.html], had 4 percent of its card accounts delinquent by more than 61 days, Ruiz said.
