Internal Controls Over Contracting and Procurement Practices

The New York Convention Center Operating Corporation operates and maintains the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. We assessed the adequacy of the Corporationís system of internal controls over its procurement and contracting activities. We found that most of these controls were effective and operating as designed. However, on a number of occasions, contracts for personal services were not awarded through the normal competitive process. We made recommendations to address this and certain other weaknesses in Corporation contracting and procurement practices.
