State Use Work Centers
LSU encourages the use of services and products provided by Louisiana's State Use Program. This special purchasing program, established in statute, is exempt from the bid process and provides a means of employment to persons with disabilities.
Over 80 Work Centers in over 55 cities across Louisiana are ready to provide services and/or products through the State Use Program. Each center must meet high quality quidelines established by State Use in order to be certified to sell.
