Report 2009-106: High-Speed Rail Authority: It Risks Delays or an Incomplete System Because of Inadequate Planning, Weak Oversight, and Lax Contract Management (Release Date: April 2010)
Recommendation #4 To: High-Speed Rail Authority, California
To ensure that it does not run out of funds for administrative and preconstruction tasks prematurely, the Authority should track expenditures for these activities and develop a long-term spending plan for them. It also should develop procedures and systems to ensure that it complies with Recovery Act requirements.
Annual Follow-Up Agency Response From September 2012
The Authority has implemented a monthly control procedure and supporting spreadsheet that collects monthly cost data from CALSTARS and reports on cumulative information for administrative and pre-construction costs. The procedure and spreadsheet also supports the projections of future costs. The reporting template is updated monthly for actual results while projections for administrative and pre-construction costs will be updated annually by management supported by the PMT.
