Port Authority of New York and New Jersey

Selected Procurement Practices and Contracting for Services (Follow-Up Review)

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey operates bridges, tunnels, airports, marine ports, office complexes and industrial parks in the metropolitan New York City area. In our prior audit reports 93-S-45 and 94-S-4, we examined the Port Authority's procurement and contracting practices and concluded that the Port Authority could save millions of dollars annually by rebidding contracts more frequently, administering contracts more effectively, and using different purchasing practices. In our follow-up review, we found that all of our prior audit recommendations have been fully implemented. Port Authority officials estimate that several million dollars will be saved as a result of implementing these recommendations. We commend Port Authority officials for their efforts.
