Parks Audit by NYC Comptroller Stringer

From Craine’s NY

“Many Department of Parks and Recreation construction projects run behind schedule and over budget, according to a recent audit from city Comptroller Scott Stringer.

The audit looked at 69 capital projects worth $317 million during fiscal years 2014 and 2015, including a pool, a bikeway and even the Trump golf course in the Bronx, and found that nearly 40% were behind schedule. The delays added $5 million to the total cost, which the audit noted was 35% more than the budgeted management fees.

The trouble stems from the department’s inadequate oversight of the private construction management firms that undertake the public works projects, according to the audit, which issued a number of recommendations to improve the process. “
