    $50M+ improperly spent on DOD credit cards during COVID pandemic – By Meghann Myers (Federal Times) / Jan 23, 2024

    The COVID-19 pandemic forced units and offices throughout the Defense Department to stock up on a range of supplies, from disposable masks to gloves and disinfectant, all of which could be purchased with a government-issued credit card and paid off by the Pentagon.

    But a DOD Inspector General review of more than 100,000 government purchase card transactions made from March 2020 to January 2022 reveals that roughly $54 million in purchases didn’t align with COVID-19 necessities.

    Another $52 million, in purchases wasn’t properly documented, and the IG was unable to verify what the cardholders actually bought.
