DoD Officials Did Not Take Appropriate Action When Notified of Potential Travel Card Misuse at Casinos and Adult Entertainment Establishments   [open pdf - 4MB]

"We determined whether DoD cardholders who used Government travel cards at casinos and adult entertainment establishments for personal use sought or received reimbursement for their charges. We also determined whether disciplinary action had been taken when personnel misused Government travel cards and if the misuse was reported to the appropriate security office. This audit was a follow-up to a previous report we had issued, Report No. DODIG-2015-125, 'DoD Cardholders Used Their Government Travel Cards for Personal Use at Casinos and Adult Entertainment Establishments,' May 19, 2015. In response to that report, the Senate Committee on Armed Services requested an additional review. We performed this audit in response to that request. We determined that DoD management (cardholder's commander or supervisor) and travel card officials did not take appropriate action when notified by the DoD OIG [Office of the Inspector General], during the previous audit, that cardholders had potentially misused their travel card. In this follow-up audit, we reviewed management's actions for 30 nonstatistically selected cardholders with the highest dollar amount of high-risk transactions that had been referred to management in the prior audit."
