Greater Rochester Community Transportation Foundation

Selected Financial Management Practices

The Greater Rochester Community Transportation Foundation was created by the Rochester-Genesee Regional Transportation Authority in 2001 to promote the communityís use of public transportation and to raise funds for the Authority. We audited the Foundationís controls over cash receipts and disbursements, and found that certain improvements were needed in the Foundationís revenue accountability. We also found that the Foundationís use of Authority buses may have violated federal regulations governing chartered transportation services. Such services should be provided by private companies, rather than public transportation authorities, unless private operators are unwilling or unable to provide the services. However, in a number of instances , we found no documentation indicating that an effort had been made to obtain the services of private operators.
