There have been reports of phone calls made from a Department of Labor phone number (202-693-2700) soliciting personal information and/or promising funds to those receiving the calls. These calls were not authorized by the Department of Labor. ETA and the Department of Labor do not and will not solicit Personally Identifiable Information, such as your Social Security number, or other personal information, over the phone. If you receive a call like this from a number that looks like an ETA phone number, consider it a spam call, hang up, and report the call to the US Department of Labor at 1-855-522-6748.

For more information about how to recognize spam calls, please reference the IRS site about recognizing these imposter calls: https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/how-to-know-its-really-the-irs-calling-or-knocking-on-your-door-0

Background. There appears to be a misunderstanding among some Federal staff, contractors and grantees about who is eligible for Federal travel discounts. The employment and Training Administration's Division of Acquisition and Assistance has researched this matter and has consulted with travel policy experts in the General Services Administration. Policy. Only Federal contractors that have cost-reimbursement contracts are eligible for travel discounts through participating vendors. Federal grantees are not eligible. Furthermore, grantees are not eligible to use General Services Administration sources of supply and services for travel purposes. Finally, grantees are not eligible for Diner's Club credit cards issued to Federal employees. Grantee/staff are expected to obtain the most economical rates possible when travelling, however. Questions. Contact your DINAP Federal Representative.
