Hotel reservations and car rentals are reserved primarily through the Purchasing Department.  We only use local businesses for this purpose.  All travel requests should be made at least one full day before the date of travel.  Enterprise Rent-A-Car 15 passenger van requests should be made as soon as possible to guarantee the availability of the van.  More notice ensures less difficulty.
