Bank contract

The State P-Card of Oregon Transaction System (SPOTS) is a joint effort between Financial Business Systems and Procurement Services. SPOTS provides state government with a low cost way to procure and pay for goods and services. We maintain an agreement with US Bank that provides state agencies with the ability to issue VISA Corporate Purchase cards to state employees.

To better understand the SPOTS card and its functions, please review the following Power Point-based SPOTS card training presentation.

Merchants accepting credit cards

Agencies may ask any vendor, including price agreement contractors, if they will accept credit cards. If they do, the products purchased with the credit card must be at the same price, terms and conditions as those listed in the price agreement documents.

Bank access

Agencies can download spend information as well as monthly card statements from Access Online,  US Bank's web based system.

Emergency use

Using SPOTS cards during an emergency provides information for business continuity planning.
