Government Travel Card Regulation
This regulation prescribes the policies and procedures governing the use of the Department of Agriculture (USDA) travel card program. The Government travel card program was developed to procure transportation services, subsistence, and other allowable travel and transportation expenses incurred during official travel. The goal of the program is to reduce substantially USDA’s cash requirements by diminishing the need for travel advances and improving internal control, cash management and administrative procedures.
