National Security Agency Inspector General Robert Storch details a new report on issues with employee travel credit cards at the agency, and why they are happening.


According to a new report, the National Security Agency has major problems with their work travel system. The report released by the agency’s inspector general, says that there has been noticeable misuse of travel credit cards, including using them for personal expenses. NSA Inspector General Robert Storch told Government Matters that the issue is widespread throughout the government. “This is an area where IGs across the community have identified risks regarding travel card programs. The NSA’s a big agency, spends a lot of taxpayer dollars. Not surprisingly, people travel, so looking at looking at how the travel cards were administered is something we thought was important,” Storch said.   Storch said that one of the biggest factors in the misuse was that training was not being properly administered at the agency. “Under DoD regulations… all employees are required to have mandatory training on the use of their travel cards. How they’re supposed to use them, what are the appropriate charges, how to go through and do the claims to seek reimbursement and the like,” Storch said. “We found in our audit that at the NSA, there was no mandatory training. Basically people had access to some guidance that they could look at, and they signed a form indicating they understood their responsibilities, but no one was going back to check to make sure that they actually checked the guidance.”
