Review of Office of Intergovernmental and External Affairs Charge Card Programs

Under the Government Charge Card Abuse Prevention Act of 2012 (Charge Card Act) and Office of Management and Budget Memorandum M-13-21, Implementation of the Government Charge Card Abuse Prevention Act of 2012, agencies must establish and maintain safeguards and internal controls for the charge card program. Offices of Inspectors General (OIGs) are required to conduct annual risk assessments of agency purchase card and travel card programs to analyze the risks of illegal, improper, and erroneous purchases. HHS-OIG's risk assessment of HHS's charge card program for FY 2017, identified Office of Intergovernmental and External Affairs (IEA) as having a high risk of inappropriate travel card and purchase card transactions. Because IEA's charge card program was assessed as high risk, the Charge Card Act requires HHS-OIG to conduct a further review. We will review the IEA's travel card and purchase card programs to determine whether the programs complied with Federal requirements.
