Y2K Compliance: Computerized Toll Collection System

The New York State Thruway Authority maintains the Computerized Toll Collection System, which is used to record and account for Thruway toll transactions. We reviewed the actions taken by the Authority in attempting to ensure that activities dependent on this automated system are not significantly disrupted because of data processing difficulties related to the year 2000. We found the Authority is taking many of the actions needed to prevent such difficulties. However, part of the system is not scheduled to be tested until September 1999, which may not allow the Authority enough time to resolve any unforeseen difficulties that are encountered during the testing.
