Report 2008-112: Electronic Waste: Some State Agencies Have Discarded Their Electronic Waste Improperly, While State and Local Oversight Is Limited (Release Date: November 2008)

Recommendation #11 To: Employment Development Department

State agencies should consider implementing the two best practices we identified: developing a thorough duty statement for recycling coordinators that includes a list of responsibilities related to e-waste and using vendors from General Services' master services agreement when the agencies need recycling services.

Agency Response*

In its follow-up response to our audit report Employment Development Department stated that it had created or updated the duty statements for its recycling coordinators or updated other comparable documents such as desk procedures and standard operating procedures.

Regarding the use of recyclers from the master services agreement, we noted in our audit report that Employment Development Department used vendors from the master services agreement. (See 2010-406, p. 102)
