Alleged Personal Use of Government Purchase Card by a Bureau of Reclamation Employee

Report Number

The OIG investigated allegations that a Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) employee misused a U.S. Government purchase card. Specifically, the complaint alleged that the employee deliberately overbought supplies for a BOR office and gave the excess items to a family member for personal use or sale. We did not substantiate the allegations. We concluded that all the purchases were properly authorized and were consistent with supply requirements at the facility.
