Charge Cards Net Rebates on Government Spending

At almost $1 billion in annual volume, the State of Texas Charge Card Program is the largest state contract of its kind in the nation.

Corporate credit cards issued to state employees and State of Texas CO-OP members are used to pay for goods, services and travel expenses.

Since the current Charge Card contract went into effect in February 2011, state and CO-OP users have generated $5.27 million in rebates through January 2012, an increase of 22.9 percent. Leveraging the State’s considerable volume, the Strategic Sourcing Division conducted multiple rounds of negotiations to successfully increase the percentage of charge card expenditures rebated to state and local governments and other CO-OP members.
