The purpose of this memorandum is to notify agencies that the credit card agreement with Diners Club will be cancelled effective March 1, 2005.  CITIBANK N.A. who manages the Diners Club Card and the State Comptroller signed the agreement in September of 1988.  We have notified CITIBANK N.A. of the cancellation.

 Agencies must notify the cardholders of the termination and that they should destroy their cards.   Agencies do not need to collect the cards.  Agencies participating in the Club Rewards Program should redeem their points.  The redemption grace period will extend to March 30, 2005. 

 Any agency that decides to pursue an individual contract with Diners Club must have the contract approved in advance by the Bureau of Auditing, as stated in the Reference Guide for State Expenditures (page T-3).  It should be noted that agreements with other credit card companies (e.g. American Express) will not be affected. 

 Please contact Mike Crowley at 850-410-9356 or mcrowley@dfs.state.fl.us if you should have any questions.
