Management Controls over Selected Facility Contractor Travel Expenses
The Department of Energy relies on contractors to manage and operate its major facilities. Management contractors' business-related travel, which includes domestic and international trips to and from field sites to attend meetings and conferences and to perform research, represents a significant cost to the Department. In Fiscal year (FY) 2006 contractors took over 192,000 trips and incurred total travel related costs of approximately $154 million.
