How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Homeland Security Wastes Up to $49 Million Annually on Vehicles It Underuses

The Department of Homeland Security spent up to $49 million on vehicles that were underused, according to a new report from the agency’s inspector general, according to Government Executive.

The audit by the DHS inspector general found that the agency lacks a system to properly maintain and track a fleet to avoid wasting money.

According to the report, Homeland Security has 56,000 automobiles, costing $534 million a year. That is the second largest fleet in the federal government.

The IG’s suggested the agency install a “single, central system of record” for the fleet.

DHS management agreed and pledged to implement the reforms by 2015.
