Report 2011-113: Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System: Increased Transparency and Stronger Controls Are Necessary as It Focuses on Improving Its Financial Situation (Release Date: March 2012)

Recommendation #9 To: Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare System

To help ensure that individuals designated by the Health Care System as needing to file statements of economic interests do so, the Health Care System should amend its conflict-of-interest policy to specify an individual as its filing officer, in accordance with guidelines of the Fair Political Practices Commission.

6-Month Agency Response

The Health Care System's amended conflict-of-interest policy specifies that its ethics and compliance officer, now called its revenue integrity and compliance director, serves as the filing officer for all positions designated in its conflict-of-interest code as needing to file statements of economic interests (designated filers).
