CITIBANK STATE OF CALIFORNIA GOVERNMENT CARD
Effective immediately, the department is no longer processing new CitiBank Individual Government credit card applications. Travelers are advised to submit a travel advance request to fund lodging and meal expenses.
CitiBank provides Caltrans with centrally billed accounts for airline, rail, and car rental charges via the Central Travel Account (CTA) program. When reservations are made through Caltrans' travel agency, CalTravelStore, charges for airfare, rail, and contract rental cars are billed to Caltrans directly through a CTA.
Failure to make reservations using CalTravelStore, may result in employees securing rates in excess of the State contract amounts and for which reimbursement may not be obtained.
For details on making reservations, see Chapter 10 –Concur Travel Reservation System.
