USAID’s Travel Card Program Complied with the Government Charge Card Abuse Prevention Act in Fiscal Year 2021 (0-000-22-014-C)
We contracted with the independent certified public accounting firm of GKA P.C. Certified Public Accountants and Consultants (GKA) to conduct an audit of USAID’s travel card program for fiscal year (FY) 2021 in compliance with the Public Law 112-194, the Charge Card Abuse Prevention Act of 2012. GKA concluded that USAID complied with the law’s requirements and that (1) the assessed risks of illegal, improper, or erroneous purchases and payments are low, (2) USAID’s internal controls for travel cards were effectively developed and implemented to prevent and detect travel card fraud, misuse, and abuse by program participants, and (3) government-issued travel card holders used the travel cards only for purchases allowed by laws and regulations, including the Federal Travel Regulation. OIG made no recommendations for agency action to address the audit results.
