Y2K Compliance: Toll System and Accounting System

The New York State Bridge Authority uses the Toll System to record and account for toll transactions, and uses the Accounting System to process administrative transactions. We reviewed the actions taken by the Authority in attempting to ensure that activities dependent on these two automated systems 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, the remediation of the Toll System is not scheduled to be completed until September 1999, which may not allow the Authority enough time to resolve any unforeseen difficulties.
