State Travel and Purchase Card

The Office of State Procurement, Travel Section, is responsible for setting state general travel regulations, known to all as Policy and Procedure Memorandum 49 (PPM49).  These regulations provide for more efficient administration of travel policies.  The office sets maximum standards along with clarifying, guiding, reviewing and approvals for all waivers to PPM49. 

The Travel Section is also the state program administrators for both the State of Louisiana's LaCarte Purchasing Card Program and the State's Corporate Travel Card Program.  Our responsibility is to educate agency program administrators and manage both programs to ensure success with​ each program.

The Travel Section is involved in the approval and paperwork process for the Louisiana Equipment Acquisition Fund, known as LEAF.  Our duties again are to guide the agencies, through the procedures and paperwork, if a request is made and approved, to utilize these funds.​​​​
