The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Office of Inspector General (OIG), has completed its risk assessment of HUD’s travel cards as required by the Government Charge Card Abuse Prevention Act of 2012 (Public Law 112-194).  Our objective was to assess the risks of illegal, improper, or erroneous purchases and payments within HUD’s travel card program.  We found that a medium risk was associated with HUD’s travel card program.  The risk assessment was based on our analysis of HUD’s fiscal year 2019 travel card spending, compliance with the program requirements, and other program risk factors.  This memorandum does not contain recommendations.  We will use the risk assessment to determine the scope, frequency, and number of periodic audits or reviews of the travel card program.
