TVA Corporate Credit Card Audit

The OIG audited corporate card transactions totaling $17.3 million for the period March 1, 2014, through August 31, 2014, to determine if appropriate policies and controls were in place to mitigate the risk of charge card fraud and abuse. We found policies could be strengthened and appropriate controls were not in place to mitigate the risk of charge card fraud and abuse. We also found there was no documentation to explain the various database tables utilized or the contents of corporate card data fields in the Employee Reimbursement System. Additionally, potential cost savings may not be achieved due to insufficient tax-related data and confusion within the organization and among vendors regarding TVA's tax status.

Message from the IG

The TVA Office of Inspector General performs a crucial mission by providing independent and objective reporting to the TVA board, the Congress, and other stakeholders. The OIG does this through its audit, evaluation and investigative activities. By statute it is charged with promoting economy and efficiency throughout TVA while preventing and detecting fraud, waste, and abuse affecting TVA. TVA employees, contractors, and the public can help the TVA OIG fulfill its mission and make a difference at TVA by reporting any suspicions about fraud, waste and abuse to the OIG hotline system, known as Empowerline.
