TVA audit
According to a new audit, TVA executives violated federal travel rules, failed to report some of their travel costs to the TVA board as required and billed the federal utility for lavish meals of up to $231 a person. And they spent thousands of dollars to ride in private car services. A review of executive travel at the federal utility found that TVA's top 67 leaders spent $1.8 million on jet travel, hotels and other travel expenses from October 2016 through July 2018. TVA's Inspector General pinpointed violations of federal and board policies by TVA executives during the period when former TVA President Bill Johnson led the agency. It includes excessive meal costs, use of expensive car services, instead of other cheaper means of travel and lodging that violated federal travel rules. The lengthy report ends with a view of top executives that indicates, "In summary, the actions by some TVA executives indicate a "Tone at the Top" that could send a message to TVA employees that management is not committed to the TVA Code of Conduct and compliance with the federal travel rules and TVA policies and procedures."
