Post-payment validation

IPEA carries out a program of post-payment validations to monitor and provide a further layer of assurance that selected travel expenses and related costs have been accessed correctly. Post-payment validations are ongoing systematic samplings of transactions. This covers a range of expenses such as:

  • business class travel
  • short term self-drive hire cars
  • accommodation receipts
  • taxis
  • travel to desirable destinations
  • travel with accompanying family
  • travel adjacent to public or school holidays.
