The regional authority overseeing one of the largest public works projects in the country is rife with mismanagement, a glaring lack of transparency and lavish spending habits that have included thousand-dollar dinners and a $9,200 plane ticket to Prague, according to a scathing interim report from the U.S. Department of Transportation's inspector general.
Inspector General Calvin L. Scovel III noted in the 16-page report that the authority has an ethics code for its board of directors but does not provide enough oversight and support to ensure that it's followed.
The authority's projections for future Dulles Toll Road revenues - which are supplying the bulk of the money for Phase 2 of the rail-to-Dulles project - appear reasonable, Mr. Scovel wrote.
