SWIFT Update March 17, 2022

Late Payments on Purchasing Card Statements 

US Bank charges late fees on past due purchasing card (PCard) accounts. Agencies are invoiced in the amount of up to one percent (1%) per month on the amount overdue, or a minimum of $2. Late fees are included on your monthly statement from US Bank but are not available during PCard reconciliation in SWIFT. To pay a late fee associated with a PCard statement, agencies need to manually add this fee to their monthly PCard voucher.

As a reminder, pay PCard statements on time to avoid potential late fees, take advantage of available rebates, and avoid potential violations of Minn. Stat. § 16A. Purchasing Policy 1b requires that Purchasing Card Coordinators use Access Online to review statements and monitor account activity.

  • If you have questions regarding processing payments for PCards, please contact Angie Brandt (
  • For questions regarding the state contract or Purchasing Card Use Policy 1b, please contact Sean Torin (

New Customized View in Review Suppliers Page

Question: Why do inactive Suppliers say “Active” on the Review Suppliers page?

Answer: In SWIFT, the Review Suppliers page shows a supplier’s “Effective Status,” which represents only the status of a specific address, not that of the supplier itself.

To help remedy this issue, MMB created a new customized view to include both the Supplier’s active/inactive status and removed the Effective Status of the individual address(es).

To customize your view, follow the steps below.

Step 1: Navigate to the Review Suppliers page in SWIFT:

Accounting, Supplier, Supplier Maintenance, Review Suppliers

Step 2: As an example, enter “658 CEDAR ST” in the Address field, then press Search.

Step 3: Select the Grid Action Menu button, and then select Personalize.

Search on Review Suppliers

Step 4: On the Personalize Column and Sort Order page, select the Copy Settings link at the bottom of the page.

Step 5: On the Copy Settings page, open the looking glass icon and select “MMB SUPPLIER REVIEW.” Then, press OK.

Step 6: SWIFT will return you to the Personalize Column and Sort Order page. Press OK at the bottom of the page.

Step 7: SWIFT will return you to the Review Suppliers page. Your search results should now be updated to show the Supplier Status.
