San Francisco Budget and Legislative Analyst Harvey Rose has published the results of a limited-scope management audit [PDF] of the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, which includes 22 recommendations that could save the agency a total of $3,090,645 annually.

We're still combing through the details along with everyone else -- including members of the Board of Supervisors. Among the top recommendations and areas for savings:

$1,215,645 in reduced transit operator standby pay

$500,000 in reduced salary costs for six transit operators currently serving as full- time union representatives, thereby permitting one transit operator to serve as a full- time union representative

$1,375,000 in estimated reduced unscheduled overtime costs.

The report also looks at issues with the governance structure of the SFMTA and its financial oversight. At a press conference this afternoon, Board of Supervisors President David Chiu said the results "confirm a lot of what we already know." The supervisors will discuss the results with Rose tomorrow at a 1:30 p.m. meeting of their Budget and Finance committee, where they'll also take up a discussion of the SFMTA's two-year budget.

We'll have a full story on the report, including reaction from the SFMTA, later today. For now, check out its 22 recommendations for yourself.
