President Trump just imposed a hiring freeze on the federal government, which makes what we found all the more surprising … the Department of Homeland Security is shopping for gyms.
DHS filed legal docs, obtained by TMZ, in which they solicit bids for a “full-range health & fitness center” for employees who work in Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
ICE is on the hunt for a gym with “state-of-the-art fitness equipment” within walking distance from one of its D.C. offices — a quarter mile on the outside. The agency is currently taking bids from local vendors.
The document — dated January 13, 2017 — states ICE will foot the bill for its employees for 12 months, starting in March, with an option to extend the contract an additional 3 years.
The document sets a limit of $200,000 for the annual memberships.
