Mission: WSCA/NASPO Lodging was created to achieve two missions. First, to ensure State and political subdivision employees are able to find lodging facilities that will honor GSA per-diem rates for their stay. Second, for the States to gather their travel spend. WSCA/NASPO Lodging contains a searchable database that will provide travelers a list of properties for their travel and will also gather all of the search information. When searching for lodging, please complete all the fields accurately. WSCA/NASPO will keep track of the search results in hopes of leveraging the spend to achieve further savings.
Extension of existing in-state lodging programs: WSCA/NASPO Lodging is meant to be an extension of in-state travel qualified lodging lists. In state lists may have a more comprehensive list that caters to the needs of that State. If traveling within your state, travelers should check any existing in-state list. If traveling out of your home state, travelers should use WSCA/NASPO Lodging to search for lodging accommodations.
Pricing: Properties participating in WSCA/NASPO Lodging must offer at or below GSA per-diem rates for State and Political subdivision employees.
Fees: Properties shall not charge Participant Travelers the following fees:
Searching Properties: The WSCA/NASPO Travel Center will display qualified properties for the city you searched for. The WSCA/NASPO Travel Center will show amenities and additional information such as a map, property details, and rates.
Estimated Cost: When searching for lodging facilities, the estimated cost that pops up is based on the per-diem and length of stay for the city searched. This estimated rate may change if the property offers a discount or if your search dates begin in one per-diem season and end in another. Local taxes may vary by location and are subject to change without notice.
Booking a room: To book a room, contact your contracted travel agency if required by your state's policy. Or, click "select" to complete the booking process.
