PT Larry Donoghue Awarded


40th Airport Operational Audit The Jacksonville Aviation Authority selected Larry Donoghue Associates, Inc. to conduct an operational audit of the airport’s public parking facilities, which has over 9,000 spaces and gross revenue of $16,000,000.


In 2000, the firm conducted an earlier operational audit for the Authority. Because a new parking operator and new revenue control equipment are in place, the Authority wanted to have the audit updated.


Larry Donoghue has now been selected to conduct a total of 40 operational audits for airports in the United States and Canada. Fifteen of them are large hubs. Seven of them have similarly reengaged him for follow up audits about 10 years later.


Larry is widely respected for his extensive research into all aspects of revenue control. Most particularly, he is recognized as the leader in developing means of combating fraud by patrons, cashiers, supervisors and managers. He has developed many very successful anti-fraud programs to protect his clients against losses by dishonest patrons and employees.
