Vacancy Losses and Tenant Accounts Receivable at Mitchell-Lama Projects (Follow-Up Review)

In our prior audit report 96-S-81, we determined that DHCR officials needed to strengthen controls for documenting projects with rent-collection problems, such as summarizing data on rent collections and establishing standards for identifying problem projects. In our follow-up review, we found that none of our four recommendations had been implemented. DHCR officials stated that they had made progress related to two of the four but did not document that progress. They said their new computer-based system would accomplish the same objectives embodied in the recommendations. However, they did not provide an implementation schedule or list of key milestone dates for the system.
