The U.S. Postal Service has 50 authorized officer positions, including the postmaster general, deputy postmaster general, and all vice presidents. All 50 positions were active during fiscal year 2023, and the Postal Service had two employees that participated in an accredited degree program. Officers and those two employees filed 895 expense reimbursement requests totaling $1,041,295.
What We Did
Our objective was to determine whether Postal Service officers complied with policies and procedures regarding travel and representation expense reimbursements. We reviewed 15 reimbursement requests for each quarter totaling $191,203.
What We Found
For the travel and representation expense reimbursements we reviewed, Postal Service officers properly supported the reimbursements and complied with Postal Service policies and procedures. We identified minor documentation issues that we communicated and resolved with Postal Service management.
Based upon the audit results we did not make any recommendations.
