 Payment Plus Initiative

The State of Utah now offers an additional (optional) Accounts Payable solution called Payment Plus to pay suppliers with automated Visa card payments. We have authorized U.S. Bank, which works with Visa, to contact our suppliers and inform them about this program. When contacted by Visa, some suppliers have questioned if this is a program authorized by the state of Utah. Their apprehension is understandable, and, therefore, we pledge that this is a legitimate program of the state of Utah.
