The report, obtained and published online by the Herald Sun, says Ms Bishop repaid $6768.25 for the trips.
Ms Bishop said she engaged her own lawyers who found that none of her travel claims were inconsistent with the rules.
Ms Bishop only returned checked entitlement-use tables to the department for the 2005/06, 2006/07 and 2013/14 financial years.
The department compiled tables for each financial year and sent them to Ms Bishop to review.
If an entitlement was identified as clearly or technically within the rules, it was up to Ms Bishop to decide if the claim was within “community expectations”, according to the report.
