New York State Thruway Authority

Contract for the E-ZPass System

Tolls on the New York State Thruway may be collected electronically through the E-ZPass system. The system is maintained by a contractor that is reimbursed on a cost-plus basis. We examined the New York State Thruway Authority’s controls over the payments made to the contractor and found that they were generally adequate. However, improvements were needed to provide assurance that the costs claimed by the contractor were accurate and the contractor’s inventories of E-ZPass tags were properly accounted for. Improvements were also needed in the practices used by the Authority to monitor the contractor’s delivery of services.
