How to request CITI Bank Auditor access:
Auditor level access provides read only access to the CITI Manager online system. Auditors do not have the ability to change any cardholder data within the system. Typically this access is limited to personnel at PPC and FINCEN in order to reconcile travel claims or process claims for split disbursement to CITI. Other sites, such as a TRACEN may also consider requesting an AO also be delegated as an auditor to improve internal controls over potential misuse by the students. If your command has a valid need to establish a GTCC auditor, please use this GTCC Auditor request template and submit to HQS-SMB-CGPSC-CITI-GTCC to the GTCC Program Manager for consideration.
