Dormitory Authority of the State of New York

Compliance with Executive Order 111 Requirements to Purchase Power from Renewable Energy Sources (Follow-Up Report)

Executive Order 111, which was issued in June 2001, requires all State agencies and certain public authorities, such as the Dormitory Authority of the State of New York (DASNY), to purchase a certain portion of their electricity from renewable sources (at least 10 percent by 2005 and 20 percent by 2010). In audit 2008-S-77, we found that DASNY was in compliance with the Executive Order, as it had already substantially exceeded the 20 percent target. We recommended that DASNY take certain actions to help ensure that it continued to comply with the Executive Order, and when we followed up with DASNY officials, we found that they had implemented our recommendations.
