GAO responded to a request from the Bureau of the Census about whether Census's travel order system, which uses electronic techniques to identify the individuals processing a travel order, is required to meet GAO requirements for electronic signatures. GAO noted that its criteria for electronic signatures do not apply to the Census travel order system, since: (1) Census still requires a handwritten signature on travel orders; and (2) the system uses user identification codes which are not an acceptable electronic signature technique.
