The Handbook introduces decision makers in transit properties, municipalities, Metropolitan Planning Organizations, and State Departments of Transportation to the concepts and techniques involved in management performance audits. Volume II, is a field guide consisting of outlines and questionnaires used in conducting an audit. The outlines and questionnaires are provided for each characteristic of a transit system including its external environment, its governing body, and its internal functions such as maintenance, transportation, accounting, and finance. The outlines give the auditor a guide for collecting data by way of interviewing employees and other individuals involved with the transit system. The questions provide technical detail that an auditor must collect from each functional area.
