The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has one of the largest motor vehicle fleets in the Federal Government, with more than 56,000 vehicles costing approximately $534 million annually. Home-to-work transportation is the use of government passenger carriers, including motor vehicles, by employees for transportation between their homes and places of work. According to DHS, home-to-work transportation is a flexible and powerful tool for meeting mission requirements and enhancing the overall responsiveness to emergency situations. Our audit objective was to determine whether DHS has implemented appropriate internal controls to ensure that home-to-work transportation is justified and used efficiently.
Consistent with CDC guidance, most Office of Inspector General employees are currently serving the American people remotely. We are determined to keep interruptions to our operations to a minimum, and we appreciate your patience during this time.
