To ensure that the casual laborers charge only for their actual hours worked on projects, General Services should retain the daily job reports and the daily time reports in the project files.
DCU has placed a high priority on strengthening its time reporting practices to ensure the accurate charging of projects for casual laborer work. As part of this process, DCU has implemented new time reporting policies and procedures which fully address the State Auditor's recommended actions including the retention of time reports in the official project file.
General Services' construction unit implemented new time reporting policies and procedures, but they do not include instructions for staff to retain the daily job, time, and expense report (DCU-2880).
General Services did not specifically address this recommendation. (See 2013-406, p. 175)
