"Federal Travel Regulations limit the circumstances in which chartered aircraft can be used for official Government business. The Office of Inspector General (OIG) conducted an audit of the use of chartered aircraft and other types of transportation for Federal travel by the former Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Thomas E. Price during his tenure from February 10 through September 29, 2017. HHS's Office of the Secretary had the primary responsibility for decisions that determined the need for chartered aircraft. Our objective was to determine whether former Secretary Price's use of chartered aircraft for Federal travel complied with applicable Federal regulations and HHS policies and procedures. We also reviewed his Federal travel using Military Aircraft (MilAir), commercial flights, and the Presidential fleet."
