Why We Did This Audit
The Government Charge Card
Abuse Prevention Act of 2012
requires the Inspector General
of each executive agency with
more than $10 million in travel
card spending to conduct
periodic audits or reviews of
travel card programs to analyze
risks of illegal, improper or
erroneous purchases and
payments.
Our objective was to analyze
the risks of illegal, improper or
erroneous purchases and
payments within the
U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency's (EPA's) travel card
program.
This report addresses the
following:
• Compliance with the law.
EPA's Travel Card Program at Low Risk for
Unauthorized Purchases
What We Found
The EPA travel card program is at low risk for
unauthorized purchases. The EPA should
continue to follow its internal controls and
procedures set forth in its travel policies and
Office of Management and Budget guidance
governing agency travel cards.
On the basis of the results of this risk assessment, the Office of Inspector
General (OIG) will not include a full audit but will include a required risk
assessment of the EPA's travel card program in the OIG's fiscal years 2017-
2018 work plan.
Our assessment
determined that the EPA's
travel card program is at
low risk for unauthorized
purchases.
