NTSB Travel Card Program

Project ID
File Attachment

On November 1, we issued our final report on NTSB's Travel Card Program. We found that NTSB's internal controls are generally adequate to safeguard against unauthorized use of Government travel cards and to prevent delinquencies. However, we identified opportunities to strengthen controls in several areas. These include ensuring that NTSB maintains an accurate roster of travel cardholders, closing separated employees' accounts in a timely manner, reducing travel card dollar limits for staff who rarely travel, documenting management overrides of system controls designed to prevent the use of travel cards for certain activities, tracking cardholders' acknowledgment of responsibility for proper use of Government-issued cards, and ensuring accurate reporting of Board members' annual travel costs to Congress. Management concurred with six of seven recommendations we made, and agreed to reevaluate its response to the last one.
