New York Convention Center Operating Corporation

Vehicle Acquisition, Use and Disposition

The New York Convention Center Operating Corporation operates and maintains the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. We found the Corporation did not comply with certain requirements for the procurement of its vehicles. For example, contrary to an Executive Order, neither of the two new light duty vehicles acquired by the Corporation since 2001 were powered by alternative fuels. In addition, contrary to IRS requirements, the Corporation was not reporting as income its employees’ personal use of employer-provided vehicles. We recommended that a number of improvements be made in the Corporation’s acquisition, use and disposition of vehicles.
