The Government Charge Card Abuse Prevention Act of 2012 requires executive branch agencies to establish and maintain: (a) internal controls to ensure the proper, efficient, and effective use of travel charge cards and (b) safeguards and internal controls for purchase cards. The act also requires Offices of Inspectors General to perform periodic risk assessments for illegal, improper, or erroneous purchases in charge card programs of executive agencies that spend over $10 million annually. To comply with the act, DOT-OIG is initiating this risk assessment of DOT’s charge card program for calendar years 2020 and 2021.
