Report on a Single Audit of the Puerto Rico Highways and Transportation Authority, San Juan, PR
What We Looked At
We reviewed the Puerto Rico Highways and Transportation Authority’s single audit report for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2017, in order to identify findings that affect directly awarded Department of Transportation programs. An independent auditor prepared the single audit report, dated December 14, 2018.
What We Found
We found that the report contained a subrecipient monitoring finding that needs prompt action from the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) management and an activities allowed or unallowed finding that needs prompt action from the Federal Highway Administration’s (FHWA) management.
We recommend that FTA ensures that the Authority complies with the subrecipient monitoring requirements. We also recommend that FHWA ensures that the Authority complies with the activities allowed or unallowed requirements, and recommend that FHWA recovers $74,746 from the Authority, if applicable.
