The State University of New York (SUNY) Downstate Medical Center paid a consultant $34 million for a plan to help the hospital out of financial trouble, but a report released Wednesday by State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli questions whether $74 million in savings even happened.

A prior DiNapoli auditreleased in August 2016 found questionable travel and excessive lodging expenses for the contractor, Pitts Management Associates (PMA), which it charged to SUNY Downstate while working on this project.
