Title

Orange County Transportation Authority, Proposition 1B Bond Program, Project Number P2500-0008

 

Overview

The California Department of Finance has conducted an audit of Proposition 1B funds awarded to the Orange County Transportation Authority for the Lakeview Avenue Grade Separation, Brookhurst Street Improvements, La Pata Avenue Phase 1, and Laguna Niguel to San Juan Capistrano Passing Siding projects. The audit report found that expenditures were generally in compliance with project agreements and program guidelines; however, four observations were made related to unsupported contract change order expenditures, late submission of final delivery reports, reporting of project benefits/outcomes, and oversight of administering agencies’ procurement processes. The results of the audit were transmitted to the California Department of Transportation, which will be responsible for developing a corrective action plan for final disposition of these observations and related recommendations.

 

Recommendation(s)

Direct staff to work, as requested with the California Department of Transportation on appropriate disposition of the observations and recommendations identified through the audit conducted by the California Department of Finance related to Proposition 1B projects.
