The Food and Drug Administration Generally Spent Prescription Drug User Fee Collections Appropriately

Issued on  | Posted on  | Report number: A-05-16-00040

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) generally spent prescription drug user fee collections appropriately. However, FDA did not have adequate supporting documentation for $6,403 in travel expenses, made a duplicate payment for airfare of $1,213, and overpaid a traveler $587. FDA recovered the duplicate payment and overpayment from the travelers during our review. The lack of supporting documentation appeared to be an oversight by FDA staff and not a systemic issue. Accordingly, this report contains no recommendations.
