The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has renewed its contract with JPMorgan Chase & Co. to provide its travel and fleet charge card services, the bank announced today. The contract is part of the General Service Administration's SmartPay2 contract. Chase expects the EPA's annual travel and fleet card volume to exceed $80 million on nearly 20,000 cards. Chase also has contracts with the U.S. Department of Commerce (CardLine, 5/5), NASA (CardLine, 3/24), the Department of the Interior and the Department of Transportation (CardLine, 2/11). The first SmartPay program, which began in 1998 and expires in November, is the largest government charge card contract in the world according to the GSA, its SmartPay issuers and industry analysts. SmartPay handled more than $27 billion in sales and more than 91 million transactions in 2007.
