Bus Charters are available on state contract through Gulf South Travel (225-293-9586). Gulf South Travel will handle soliciting all of the necessary quotes from the bus companies and also reserve the buses for the budget unit. After receiving a quote from Gulf South Travel, the budget unit must complete a purchase requisition and attach the quote, then forward to the Purchasing Office for processing.
The Purchasing Office will issue a purchase order to Gulf South Travel. If the department chooses not to use state contract, then normal purchasing procedures must be followed and the selected bus company must provide Certificates of Insurance meeting all University Insurance Requirements.
