HHS Government Purchase, Travel, and Integrated Charge Card Programs - Mandatory Review

The Government Charge Card Abuse Prevention Act of 2012 (Charge Card Act) requires Inspectors General (IGs) to conduct periodic risk assessments of their agencies' charge card programs to analyze the risks of illegal, improper, or erroneous purchases. The Charge Card Act requires IGs to use the risk assessments to determine the necessary scope, frequency, and number of IG audits or reviews of the charge card programs. It requires Federal agencies to establish and maintain safeguards and internal controls for purchase cards, convenience checks, travel cards, and integrated cards. Office of Management and Budget has instructed IGs to submit annual status reports on purchase and travel card audit recommendations beginning January 31, 2014, for compilation and transmission to Congress and General Accountability Office. We will review HHS's charge card programs (e.g., purchase, travel, or integrated cards) to assess the risks of illegal, improper, or erroneous purchases. HHS's charge card programs enable cardholders to pay for commercial goods, services, and travel expenses.
