Audits and Reviews

Implementing and managing a successful, high-quality auditing program is one of the many key elements that drives success within a department.

Implementing and managing a successful, high-quality auditing program is one of the many key elements that drives success within a department. bcg has been involved in all facets of audit development since 1995. Our teams have worked with the Federal Transit Administration (FTA)’s Office of Transit Safety & Oversight (TSO-20) and Office of State Safety Oversight (SSO) to develop, pioneer, and assist in every aspect of audit program creation, management, and resource development.

bcg’s Role

We have worked with TSO-20 to assist in:

  • Drafting procedures, manuals, checklists, and templates
  • Conducting on-site audit interviews, records reviews, and field observations
  • Managing post-audit reporting and tracking
  • Developing audit reports and briefing packages

Our team is adept at working with agencies and departments of all sizes. In 2015, bcg provided critical assistance to FTA in its evaluation of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority. Our team of hand-selected individuals and experts carried the responsibility of leading the entire evaluation, which included managing inspections, reviewing safety event inspections (almost 100), reviewing internal and external audit reports, as well as hundreds of safety event reports and documents pertaining to emergency management, maintenance, and roadway worker protection, to name a few.

We believe in maintaining the utmost transparency between all members involved on a project at any given time. We cultivate open lines of communication with upper-level management through the preparation and delivery of reports, teleconferences, and briefing packages.  

Results

In light of the fact that SSO regulation requirements can change over the years, it’s important that states and agencies also evolve and grow their safety and operational procedures over time. The experts at bcg offer vast industry experience and are routinely involved in the development and rollout of resources to help keep transit industry professionals informed and at the top of their game.
