Report 2007-102.1 Recommendation 6 Responses

Report 2007-102.1: California State University: It Needs to Strengthen Its Oversight and Establish Stricter Policies for Compensating Current and Former Employees (Release Date: November 2007)

Recommendation #6 To: University, California State

The university should continue to work with California Faculty Association representatives during the collective bargaining process to strengthen its dual-employment policy by imposing disclosure and approval requirements for faculty. It should also impose similar requirements for other employees, including management personnel. If the university believes it needs a statutory change to facilitate its efforts, it should seek it.

Annual Follow-Up Agency Response From October 2013

The Outside Employment Disclosure Requirements for MPP and Executive Employees (Attachment A - Report 2007.102.1, Recommendation #6) was implemented in August 2013. The policy letter strengthened the dual-employment policy by imposing disclosure and approval requirements for MPP and executive employees, which includes disclosure of outside employment within 30 days of taking outside employment. Also, if an administrator deems it necessary to request confirmation that an individual's outside employment does not interfere with their normal work assignment or satisfactory performance, the individual must comply with the administrator's request. Furthermore, if an administrator requests the disclosure of outside employment from an individual, the individual must respond within 10 days to satisfy the administrator's request. A sample disclosure and acknowledgement form is also included in the technical letter.

  • Completion Date: August 2013

California State Auditor's Assessment of Annual Follow-Up Status: Fully Implemented

The university previously implemented similar requirements for faculty through its collective bargaining agreement with the California Faculty Association.

Annual Follow-Up Agency Response From September 2012

The CSU/CFA CBA (effective 9/18/12) contains a requirement for full-time faculty to disclose outside employment above 160 hours/semester or 120 hours/quarter. CSU will move to require similar reporting standards for other employee groups, including MPP's. To continue the process of similar requirements for other represented employee groups will require collective bargaining. The imposition of similar requirements on MPP's will require Board of Trustee action to change Title V, and the CSU intends to pursue these changes for MPP's.
