Pursuant to an agency request, GAO determined whether the: (1) electronic signatures generated by the Corps of Engineers Financial Management System (CEFMS) are adequate for travel orders and vouchers; and (2) Corps can allow travelers to retain their travel receipts if proper travel receipt retention procedures are implemented. GAO noted that: (1) the electronic signatures produced by CEFMS are acceptable for financial management applications such as travel; (2) the Corps can allow employees to retain receipts relating to travel vouchers when adequate internal controls have been implemented; and (3) if the Corps adopts and properly implements procedures similar to those that have been approved for the Department of Defense, the federal government's interests will be adequately protected.
