The Michigan Purchasing Card Consortium (MPCC) is pleased to announce the transition of the purchasing card program to PFM Financial Services, LLC. (PFM) and BMO Harris Bank N.A.
The MPCC is a cooperative program endorsed by Michigan School Business Officials (MSBO), Michigan Association of School Boards (MASB), Michigan Association of Superintendents and Administrators (MASA) that provides school districts with the opportunity to access a free purchasing card program that offers high quality customer service, equitable access for all districts regardless of location and size, and an opportunity to receive a competitive rebate based on the district and overall consortium spend.
You may recognize the PFM name as they manage the assets of the MILAF+ Fund in Michigan. The decision to join with PFM focused on their proven customer focus, statewide district coverage, competitive rebate opportunities, and a complimentary cash management strategy for those districts that also invest in the MILAF+ Fund. Our purchasing card program, although separate from the MILAF+ Fund, will be serviced by the trusted and responsive staff of PFM that already provide exemplary service to districts across the state.
Current and interested new participants are encouraged to contact the PFM Transition Team with any questions regarding the transition process. PFM staff have already started contacting districts to ensure a smooth transition. The team will evaluate your situation and develop a transition plan that meets your needs and timeframe. A full transition of our program to PFM and BMO Harris Bank is set for June 30, 2019. We are pleased to announce that districts can now transition anytime between January 1, 2019 and June 30, 2019.
We appreciate your support of the Michigan Purchasing Card Consortium and look forward to enhancing your program through our new agreement with PFM and BMO Harris Bank. The cornerstones of our consortium is customer service, competitive rebates, and helping your business office be more effective and efficient.
