Albany – A leader of the New York State Public Employees Federation (PEF) will provide testimony at a Senate Task Force on Government Efficiency about spending in the state Department of Transportation.
PEF Vice President Tom Comanzo will point out how more than $84 million dollars are being wasted on an annual basis due to the excessive use of consultants for engineering and construction inspection.
PEF’s plan identifies how DOT can save between $55.6 million to $84.3 million a year, especially when the state is facing a $9.2 billion budget deficit.
