New Audit Announcements
Major Project Monitoring Initiated of Lower Manhattan Recovery Projects
Following up on our July 13 testimony before the House Homeland Security Subcommittee on Management, Integration, and Oversight on the importance of oversight of the post 9/11 transportation reconstruction projects in Lower Manhattan, on August, 28 we announced our plans to begin conducting major project monitoring of FTA's five high-priority projects in Lower Manhattan. The primary objectives of this effort will be to assess: (1) the status of each project, including costs, funding, schedules, and management; and (2) any risks that may adversely impact their completion. We will also look at issues related to FTA's Lower Manhattan Recovery Office's oversight of these projects and the activities of the project management oversight consultants that are assigned to each project.
