Accuracy of Employee Retirement Reporting

The New York State Thruway Authority maintains New York’s superhighway system, and its subsidiary, the New York State Canal Corporation, maintains the State’s canal system. The Authority enrolls many of its employees in the New York State Employees’ Retirement System. We examined the Authority’s enrollment practices and found that they complied with State requirements. In addition, the Authority is required to report certain information to the Retirement System about the enrolled employees’ earnings and number of days worked. We examined these reporting practices and found that the information reported by the Authority was, for the most part, accurate. However, we identified one reporting error, which we recommended be corrected.
