Benefited New Employee Orientation
Non-Benefited New Employee Orientation
The program discount is offered to NDUS employees booking EITHER business or personal travel. It can also be used for buying tickets for immediate family members, if the booking is made by the employee.
Using a Travel Agent
Yes, you can use a travel agent; however, they must complete an ATPCO Form with Delta in order to pass the discount to you. Please see the list of Travel Agents Approved to Offer Discount for those already setup. Click on “List Contracts.” Look for the contract name of “Travel - Delta Air Fare Discounts” or contract number “208”. Click on “View.” Look for the attachment labeled “Travel Agents Approved to Offer Discount.” Click on “View.” If you do not see a specific travel agent in the list, please contact the State of ND Procurement Officer (Tricia Opp,701.328.1721) for information on getting them setup. There is no fee for them to complete the form.
It would be a good idea to remind your travel agent that the State is eligible for the EDP Negotiated Rate so they don’t forget when booking your tickets.
Fare Rates Eligible for Discounts
Navigate to the same state procurement office website listed above. Right under the “Attachment 1 - Travel Agents Offering Discount” item, you will see the “ Attachment 2 - Fare Class Eligible for Discount” link.
Booking Through Purchasing Sites
You will not be able to take advantage of this discount being offered if booking through these sites. The only time the discount will be applied is if you book via the “Delta EDP Link” or via a travel agent – see note above regarding the use of a travel agent.
Yes, you will still earn miles when booking flights through this discount program. You can enter your SkyMiles number when booking your flight.
Delta EDP Help Contact Information
Contact the NDUS Help Desk at helpdesk.ndus.edu or call 866.457.6387. Tell them you are trying to access the “Delta EDP Link’ via PeopleSoft and describe the error message.
Booking Hotels and Cars
No, hotel and car rentals are not linked to the Delta EDP program.
Using Other Airlines
You are not required to book flights with Delta; however, if you do use Delta you will need to access the Delta EDP Link to receive the discount or through a travel agency (see note above about using travel agents.)
Delta EDP Access Troubleshooting
If you are using Internet Explorer, go to Internet Options and under the General tab, delete your browsing history including temporary internet files, history, download history, and ActiveX filtering and tracking protection data. Also under the Delete Browsing History, make sure the “Preserve Favorites website data” check box is unchecked. Then go into back to Internet Options and click on the Security tab, Local Intranet and then the Sites button. Click Advanced and then add Delta.com. Close IE totally after getting out of the Internet Options window and try it again. If you still cannot access the site, contact the NDUS Help Desk as listed above.
