E-Gov Travel Service (ETS)
What is ETS?
The E-Gov Travel Service (ETS) is a governmentwide, web-based, world-class travel management service. It was launched in April 2002 to save significantly on costs and improve employee productivity.
The current ETS contractors are:
- CWTSatoTravel (E2 Solutions);
- Hewlett Packard Enterprise Services, formerly Electronic Data Systems Corp. (FedTraveler.com); and
- Northrop Grumman Mission Systems (GovTrip).
How has ETS benefited federal agencies?
ETS unified over 80 Executive Branch agencies to a common, secure, web-based, automated service. It eliminated over 250 disparate, non-web-based and paper-driven systems; leveraged the government’s purchasing power; increased online adoption; reduced reimbursement cycle time; and significantly reduced voucher costs.
The ETS master contract will expire on November 11, 2013.
