SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Agencies carrying out their various missions must do so in a fiscally responsible manner to protect the interests of taxpayers. The President issued Executive Order (E.O.) 13589, “Promoting Efficient Spending,” on November 9, 2011, to achieve this goal by charging agencies with aggressively cutting waste and promoting efficient and effective spending in administrative areas that are necessary to conducting official business. In Section 3, the E.O. identified travel as one area of opportunity for cost savings, and provided in subsection 3(b) that agencies, agency components, and offices of inspectors general should designate a senior-level official to be responsible for developing and implementing policies and controls to ensure efficient spending for travel and conference-related activities.
