Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation

Selected Operating Practices

The Roosevelt Island Operating Corporation is responsible for the development, operation, security and maintenance of a planned, mixed-income urban community located on Roosevelt Island in New York City. We examined selected operating practices at the Corporation and found that certain improvements are needed. For example, hiring procedures are not adequately formalized, open positions may not be publicly advertised, and a minimum amount of education or experience is not required for most jobs. We also identified weaknesses in the Corporation's inventory controls and process for planning capital construction projects.
