|SUBJECT:||Business Travel Accounts (BTAs) with April 2007 Expiration Dates|
|A & R CONTACT:||Tim Hund||(785) 368-6347||(firstname.lastname@example.org)|
|SUMMARY:||The expiration dates of BTAs that expire in April 2007 will automatically be extended to April 2009.|
The expiration date for many, but not all, of the State’s Business Travel Accounts (BTAs) is April 30, 2007. BTAs are cardless VISA accounts used to purchase transportation tickets for employee travel and to pay for vehicle rentals from Enterprise Leasing Company of Kansas.
The expiration dates of BTAs, with April 2007 expiration dates, will automatically be extended to April 2009. The extension of expiration dates for these BTAs will be a seamless process for agencies, i.e., agencies will not experience a loss of service for their BTAs when expiration dates are extended to April 2009.
New CVV numbers will be assigned to BTAs with April 2007 expiration dates. (The CVV number is a three digit verification number that merchants sometimes request to verify user identification.) UMB Bank will directly notify agencies by letter of the new CVV numbers by mid-April 2007.) These letters will be sent to the same name and address as the monthly BTA billing statements.
The Division of Accounts and Reports will provide a list of new CVV numbers to Short’s Travel Management, Inc. (the State’s Contractor for Travel Agency Management Services) and to Enterprise Leasing Company of Kansas, to ensure a smooth transition during the process of extending BTA expiration dates. If your agency has provided the BTA number to other vendors, and these vendors use the CVV in transaction processing, you will need to provide the new CVV to the vendor prior to April 30, 2007.
