Description

Performance audit of transportation. Provides for the Auditor of Public Accounts to administer an operational and programmatic performance audit focusing on the agencies within the Transportation Secretariat. The audit will be conducted by a private management consulting firm with a final report to be completed by December 31, 2009. The goal of the audit is to determine an objective and independent cost savings assessment of the Commonwealth's organizational structure and efficiency of the Commonwealth's transportation programs to provide information to the Governor and the General Assembly on ways to reduce duplication of effort and implement cost savings measures and programmatic efficiencies in the operation of state transportation programs. Any monetary savings realized from implementation of recommendations of the performance audit will be applied to the Highway Maintenance and Operating Fund. The costs of conducting the audit will be paid from existing appropriations to agencies within the Transportation Secretariat and are not to exceed $4 million. Read the Bill »
