New Audit Announcements
Audit Announcement of DOT Conference-Related Activities and Expenses
The Office of Inspector General is initiating an audit of DOT’s conference-related activities and expenses. After reports of excessive conference spending at various Federal agencies, Congress enacted laws to create transparency in Federal conference spending. In September 2011, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) instructed agencies to review policies and controls associated with conference-related activities and expenses. Our audit objectives are to (1) evaluate DOT’s policies and procedures to determine the extent they adequately reflect Federal laws, regulations, and OMB guidance, and (2) determine whether DOT has implemented adequate procedures to ensure that operating administrations are adhering to those policies.
