Paperless Purchase Orders & Internal Requisitions
Purpose of Paperless Purchase Orders & Internal Requisitions for Travel
All contract travel agencies (CTAs) accept either a paperless purchase order (preferred) or a paper internal requisition for the billing of official university airfare. All CTAs, with the exception of Expedia, also accept a paperless purchase order or internal requisition for contract rental cars, executive ground transportation, and local hotels.

Use of a paperless purchase order with CTAs is new, effective March 18, 2008. Because of the many benefits associated with the automated process, use of a paperless purchase order is preferred. Specific advantages are posted on the following website:
Alternative Method: Internal Requisitions
Internal Requisitions will still be accepted by CTAs until further notice. Internal requisitions are paper forms that need to be faxed to the applicable CTA. Transactions typically post 30-60 days after the purchase date on the department's Account Status Report (ASR).
