Our Help Desk hours are Monday through Friday, 8AM to 5PM (CST). We will endeavor to respond to all requests within 24 hours. We do not guarantee a resolution to an inquiry in that time period, but will acknowledge the inquiry and communicate with the requestor as needed to gather more information. Please note: standard inquiries/requests may take longer than 24 hours to receive a response when submitted on a Saturday or Sunday when our office is closed.

Online registration is available for new vendors that wish to register to do business with the State. You can register for as few or as many commodities as you wish, and you may edit your enrollment at any time.
The State has converted from NIGP commodity codes to UNSPSC commodity codes for vendor registration and posting to LaPAC.
For the purposes of vendor enrollment, an in-state vendor is one that is incorporated in the State of Louisiana.
