New York City Department of Parks and Recreation

Selected Management Practices of the Capital Project Program

We examined the actions taken by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation in identifying its capital improvements needs, and found that the Department did not have a formal system for identifying and prioritizing such needs. As a result, the Department had less assurance that capital funds were allocated on the basis of needs. We also examined the Departmentís monitoring of contractors on capital projects. We found that, in most respects, contractors were monitored in accordance with Department requirements, but certain improvements could be made in the Departmentís monitoring practices.
