Oversight audits

The Regional Transit Authority (RTA) Audit Division’s mission is to provide an independent, objective assurance and consulting function designed to add value and improve the operations of the RTA and the Service Boards (CTA, Metra, and Pace). The Division performs several types of audits to ensure full compliance with statutes and regulations, develop assessments of how management is conducting one or more aspects of the agency's operations, and provide recommendations for improvement.

Audits completed in 2022

The following audits were completed by the RTA this year. Previous audit reports can be found on the RTAMS Digital Document Library.

  • ADA Paratransit Triennial Review (March 2022): The operation of the ADA Paratransit Service, which provides transportation to eligible individuals who are unable to use accessible fixed-route services in the RTA region due to their disabilities, is the responsibility of Pace. The audit was conducted in order to comply with the amendment to the RTA Act in 2008 which requires the RTA to conduct triennial financial, compliance, and performance audits of ADA Paratransit services.
