Battery Park City Authority

Internal Controls Over Employee Compensation, Travel and Entertainment, and Community Event Expenditures

Battery Park City Authority was created to supervise the development of a planned residential and commercial community in lower Manhattan.

We also determined that the Authority could improve controls over community event expenditures by developing written policies and procedures for such expenditures.
