Fiscal Year 2022 Board of Governors' Expenditures

The Postal Reorganization Act of 1970, as amended, established the Postal Service’s Board of Governors (Board). The Board directs and controls Postal Service expenditures, reviews its practices and policies, and establishes its objectives and long-range goals. Board policy requires an annual audit of Board expenses by the Office of the Inspector General. In Fiscal Year 2022, the Board incurred over $175,000 in travel, meeting, and other expenses. Our objective is to determine whether travel and miscellaneous expenses of the Board are properly supported, reasonable, and complied with Postal Service and Board policies and procedures.
