Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority

Vehicle Acquisition, Use and Disposition

The Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority operates a bridge between the United States and Canada. The Authority also operates port facilities, an airport, a 25-mile railroad link connecting its port facilities with a national railroad network, and an industrial and warehouse park. To support its operations, the Authority has a fleet of motor vehicles. We found the Authority did not comply with certain requirements for the procurement and use of these vehicles. For example, contrary to an Executive Order, none of the five new light duty vehicles acquired by the Authority since 2001 were powered by alternative fuels. We also found the Authority did not fully comply with IRS guidelines for calculating the income to be credited to employees for their personal use of employer-provided vehicles.
