OFFICE OF STATE TRAVEL AND TRAVEL CARD
The Office of State Travel is responsible for setting Louisiana's general travel regulations, known 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 approving all waivers to PPM49.
State Travel is also the state program administrator for both the State of Louisiana's LaCarte Purchasing Card Program and the State's Corporate Travel Card Program. Its responsibility is to educate agency program administrators and manage both programs to ensure success.
