Audit Report 2-22: Travel of SBA’s Former Regional Administrator
Date Issued: Wednesday, August 7, 2002
Report Number: 2-22

On August 7, 2002, the OIG issued Audit Report 2-22, Audit Report on the Travel of SBA’s Former Regional Administrator, at the request of the Senate Small Business Committee.  The Committee was concerned that the government may have improperly subsidized the former Regional Administrator’s weekend travel costs.  The OIG made three recommendations that included updating the SOPs, obtaining reimbursement for nearly $10,000 in unallowable travel costs, and provide training on relevant travel rules and regulations for newly appointed authorizing and approving officials within 30 days of their appointment.
