Letter to OMB on DOT Status of Charge Card Open Recommendations
The Government Charge Card Abuse Prevention Act of 2012 requires us to report to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) on the implementation of recommendations made to address findings from audits of the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) charge card programs. In fiscal year 2020, we issued one report on DOT’s purchase card program, and in fiscal year 2021, we issued one report on DOT’s travel card program. All purchase card recommendations have subsequently been closed; however, all 11 travel card recommendations remain open. Additionally, we conducted a risk assessment review of DOT’s charge card programs and determined the risk to be medium for illegal, improper, or erroneous purchases for calendar years 2020 and 2021.
