<p>I have spent 14 years selling to the Federal and Military and the past 20 years helping mostly small businesses sell more to Federal/Military customers.&nbsp;</p><p>I am building a list of contact intormation for Smartpay cardholders.&nbsp; GSA&#39;s Smartpay office tells me they don&#39;t have such a list, so I am , online and through the Freedom of Information Act, building a list of Smartpay card holders.&nbsp;</p><p>I would be grateful for any advice, suggestions, etc. you all might have that would educate me and help me do a better job at helping small companies not fail at selling to the Federal and Military.&nbsp; I have read too many reports on how various parts of the government and DOD have not met their goals at increasing purchasing from small businesses.&nbsp; I have seen too many good people fail because they could not navigate the complex maze to find the people who needed what they were selling.</p><p>Any advice would be greatly appreciated.&nbsp;</p><p>Ernie Gutierrez</p><p><a href="mailto:realisticlists@aol.com">realisticlists@aol.com</a></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p>

<p>Yes, SmartPay and P-Card are synonyms; SmartPay being the official name for the Government Purchase Card.&nbsp; Yes there is a $3,000 micro-purchase limit on the card, although it can be used as a payment tool up to the limit of the cardholder&#39;s warrant/authority.</p>
