It was recommended that HUD’s Office of Chief Financial Officer:
- Coordinate with the related program offices, the Office of the Chief Human Capital Officer, and the Office of Employee Labor Relations to take appropriate actions against the employees identified in this report.
- Improve controls to ensure the proper use of the travel cards and prevent or detect employees who did not use their government travel cards when required.
- Provide employees with appropriate training on the issues identified in this report and ensure that all cardholder training is up to date.
