Fiscal Year 2013 Risk Assessment of DHS Charge Card Abuse Prevention Program

Executive Summary

Under the Charge Card Act and OMB Memorandum M‐13‐21, Implementation of the Government Charge Card Abuse Prevention Act of 2012, our office is required to conduct periodic risk assessments of agency purchase cards (including convenience checks), combined integrated card programs, and travel card programs to analyze the risks of illegal, improper, or erroneous purchases and payments. Inspectors General (IGs) will use these risk assessments to determine the necessary scope, frequency, and number of IG audits or reviews of these programs. Also, we are required to report to the Director of OMB 120 days after the end of each fiscal year on the Department’s progress in implementing audit recommendations, and beginning with fiscal year (FY) 2013, the submission is due by January 31, 2014. This report satisfies the reporting requirement for FY 2013.
