Port Authority of New York and New Jersey

Management and Control of Employee Overtime Costs

During 2010, the Port Authority paid $85.7 million in overtime to 5,360 employees. We reviewed these costs and found that Port Authority officials have not effectively managed and controlled employee overtime costs. We found numerous examples of employees earning overtime that exceeded their base salaries. We also determined that Port Authority retirees accounted for 24 percent of the top 300 pensioners in the New York State Retirement System as of December 31, 2009.
