Travelers are encouraged to use rental cars for short-duration trips because they are usually more cost-effective than other means including the use of a personal vehicle.
A rental car should be obtained from an authorized rental agency, as specified in the Office of General Services (OGS) contract. When renting a vehicle for official state business, the traveler should rent the vehicle in the name of New York State and sign the agreement as an agent for the state.
State employees renting vehicles should use the New York State Enterprise Rental Contact which automatically provides driver protection products that are covered in the United States. If duplicate driver protection products are selected by the traveler, they will not be reimbursed.
Please see the Buffalo State Procurement Services Office Website for further information concerning rental cars.
