Audit of the NTSB Purchase Card Program
On August 23, we issued our final report on NTSB’s Purchase Card Program. We found that NTSB’s internal controls over Government purchase card use have improved appreciably when compared with the board’s previous purchasing system. However, we found that internal controls over Government purchase card use were not effectively implemented to safeguard against fraud, waste, and abuse. We recommended that NTSB enhance management review of purchase card transactions, removal of separated cardholders’ accounts, annual program review, employee training requirements, and record keeping. Management generally concurred with our findings and recommendations and in some cases completed the corrective actions.
