All invoices and itemized schedule of travel have been modified with the new mileage rate and are posted in the Fiscal Information section of this site. Interpreters MUST use these invoices for work performed on and after April 1. Any previous invoice templates used for work on April 1 or later will be rejected.


Item 3: Email Scam Alert

January 30, 2018: The following is a message from the Administrative Office of the US Courts regarding a recent email scam:

Court interpreters in several states recently received a scam email requesting money to be listed in the Federal Judiciary's National Court Interpreter Database (NCID).  The scam message, which appeared as though it were sent by AO Director James C. Duff, or a U.S. District Judge, requested interpreters wire money through Western Union to a person in Iowa. Please note that this email is fraudulent and did not come from the United States Courts or Director Duff. The Judiciary has never required anyone to pay a fee to be listed in the NCID, which is used by federal courts to locate contract interpreters. The AO has notified relevant law enforcement agencies about this scam.  If you know of anyone who receives this fraudulent email, please have them forward the email to NCID_Help@ao.uscourts.gov.


Item 4: Numbering Invoices

January 2, 2018: Effective immediately, DFA requires all invoices to include an invoice number. For more information, visit the Fiscal Information>Invoicing section of this site or click here.
