Travel Update #12-01

TO: Agency Travel Coordinators
FROM: Malcolm Weems, Chairman
DATE: July 1, 2011
SUBJECT: Fiscal Year 2012 Preferred Hotel Listing

The FY12 Preferred Hotel Listing is now available on the internet at: The FY12 Preferred Hotel Listing is a comprehensive guide to hotels that offer State employees quality accommodations at a discounted rate.

The Preferred Hotel Listing has been designed to assist travelers in locating hotels and identifying services to fit their specific needs. Employees are required to contact preferred hotels first when seeking overnight accommodations.

The rates listed are valid through June 30, 2012, although may be based on availability.

In an effort to reduce costs, a hard copy of the Travel Guide for State Employees will not be published this year. Agencies are encouraged to utilize the listing online instead of printing hard copies.

As the appointed Travel Coordinator for your agency, it is your responsibility to disseminate this information to all appropriate personnel within your agency. If you have any questions, please contact Kelley Wells, State Travel Coordinator at (217) 782-4705 or by email at
