LaGov - Online Vendor Registration

Online registration is available for new vendors that wish to register to do business with the State. You can register for as few or as many commodities as you wish, and you may edit your enrollment at any time.

  • Vendors that previously registered in LaPAC will be deleted. All vendors must register in LaGov. Vendors that wish to receive automatic email notifications of bid opportunities and addenda for the commodities for which they registered, must pay a vendor enrollment fee. The fee is $50 for in-state vendors and $100 for out-of-state vendors annually for the period 7/1/ through 6/30. Online payment is available.  For the purposes of vendor enrollment, an in-state vendor is one that is incorporated in the State of Louisiana.
  • The State has converted from NIGP commodity codes to UNSPSC commodity codes for vendor registration and posting to LaPAC.

Equipment Financing Program - LEAF

The Office of State Procurement has established the Louisiana Equipment Acquisition Fund (LEAF) program. This is a self administered internal finance program. The equipment which may be financed through the LEAF program includes those items which historically have been rented or leased and those equipment items historically placed in the bond portion of the Capital Outlay Bill.

The eligible program participants are all budgeted state agencies contained within the General Appropriation and Ancillary Appropriations Acts. Agencies should contact State Procurement to determine eligibility for this program.
