State Departmentportationion Employees Struggle with Trauma, Department Name

"I will not be able to work there," said Ely Yulman, a tax auditor for the New York State Departmentportationion and Finance, which lost 40 employees in the World Trade Center.
This from a New York Times article about workers from the old World Trade Center moving (or not moving) into whatever new building takes its place. Normally, teasing the NYT over a typo might be beneath even our threshold of interest, but "Departmentportationion"? Seems like a compound mutation of "Department of Taxation [and Finance]," with a little bit of "Transportation" thrown in. Certainly one way to streamline a turgid bureaucracy.
