The National Security Agency (NSA) Audit of the Agency’s Travel Program AU-18-0003

View full audit


The Office of the Inspector General (OIG) conducted this audit of NSA’s travel program because of the inherent risk related to reimbursing travel expenses using government travel charge cards.


The OIG found that improvements are needed to ensure that:

  • Individually billed travel card accounts are properly monitored.
  • Centrally billed travel charge card accounts are reconciled.
  • Former Agency military affiliates’ travel charge card accounts are closed.
  • Travel and Government Travel Charge Card (GTCC) training is provided to agency employees.
  • Airline travel claims are submitted in a way that mitigates risk.
  • An integrated travel modernization strategy is effectively developed.

A total of 10 recommendations were made to the agency in addressing these concerns.
