Review of HHS Government Purchase, Travel, and Integrated Charge Card Programs

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. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has instructed IGs to submit status reports on purchase and travel card audit recommendations for compilation and transmission to Congress and the Government Accountability Office. We will periodically conduct risk assessments of HHS's charge card programs (i.e., purchase, travel, or integrated cards) used to pay for commercial goods, services, and travel expense and will conduct audits of those programs as warranted. We will also submit status reports on related audit recommendations to OMB as required.
