Report 2011-504: High-Speed Rail Authority Follow-Up: Although the Authority Addressed Some of Our Prior Concerns, Its Funding Situation Has Become Increasingly Risky and the Authority's Weak Oversight Persists (Release Date: January 2012)

Recommendation #5 To: High-Speed Rail Authority, California

In order to ensure that staff receive relevant information on the program's status, the Authority should amend the oversight consultant's work plan to include a critical review of the progress reports for accuracy and consistency. Authority staff should also request that the Program Manager revise its progress reports to include information on the status of contract products and services in relationship to what was promised.

The Authority amended the oversight consultant's work plan to include a critical review of the progress reports.
