Travel Charge Card Program

Travel Card Program

The DOC Travel Charge Card Handbook implements the mandatory use of the travel charge card by all DOC official travelers.   This policy supplements the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR) where additional policy or guidance is required.  The Federal Travel Regulations (FTR) travel charge card policy can be found in Chapter 301, Sections 51, 52, 54, 70, 71, 72, 73, 75, and 76.

All Department of Commerce (DOC) employees are required to use an official travel charge card for expenses (excluding airline tickets) if they travel five or more times in a year, unless they fall into an exempt classification.  When you submit a voucher, you are reimbursed for approved expenses and are responsible for paying your travel charge card bill on time.  The current DOC travel charge card provider is JPMorgan Chase.

New cardholders must complete the GSA online training course to familiarize themselves with the overall travel card program, policies and procedures.
