Department of Health, Oversight of Revenue Contracts (2009-S-17)
As of Nov. 24, 2008, the Department of Health (DOH) had a total of 633 active revenue contracts totaling over $468 million per year in expected revenue collections. Auditors looked at the DOH’s oversight of its revenue contracts for the period Jan. 1, 2008 through Feb. 23, 2010 and found that the DOH appropriately billed, collected, and promptly deposited in the correct accounts, the $9.2 million contract revenue sampled for the audit period.
Office of Children and Family Services, Oversight of Operating Revenue Contracts (2009-S-18)
The Office of Children and Family Services (OCFS) often enters into contracts with vendors to collect program-related revenues which they share with OCFS. Auditors examined whether OCFS was maximizing its revenue opportunities and effectively monitoring its revenue contracts. They found that OCFS officials were effectively maximizing contract revenue and monitoring contracts to ensure that all entitled revenue was collected and promptly deposited into the appropriate accounts.
Metropolitan Transportation Authority, Metro-North Railroad: Recycling Program (2009-S-92)
Metro-North is required to comply with certain recycling requirements specified in state law and Executive Order 4, which was issued in April 2008. Auditors found that Metro-North was generally in compliance with these requirements. However, auditors identified the need for improvements in certain aspects of Metro-North’s recycling program.
