Report I2010-1045: California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation and California Correctional Health Care Services: Both Agencies Wasted State Resources by Improperly Accounting for Leave Taken by Their Employees (Release Date: June 2013)
Case Number I2010-1045
Recommendation #1 To: Correctional Health Care Services, California
Conduct an audit of the leave accounting system during the past three years to identify instances of nonmanagerial, exempt employees working an alternate schedule at an adult correctional facility being charged incorrect amounts of leave for missed days of work.
Agency Response From September 2014
Correctional Health Services provided us with evidence of its audit of leave reports, including changes it made to time sheets and leave records of various employees. However, Correctional Health Services informed us that it did not track all changes made to the leave balances of employees during its audit; thus, it could not identify for us the total number of leave hours that were mischarged for its employees. Nevertheless, we consider this recommendation to be fully implemented.
California State Auditor's Assessment of Status: Fully Implemented
Agency Response From February 2014
Correctional Health Services provided some evidence of its audit of leave reports, including changes it made to time sheets and leave records. However, it did not provide us with sufficient evidence or information to identify the results obtained from its audit. Thus, we requested that Correctional Health Services provide us with the results of its audit of leave reports for the previous three years.
California State Auditor's Assessment of Status: Partially Implemented
Agency Response From November 2013
Correctional Health Services reported that it audited leave reports at the eight adult correctional facilities where it has assumed responsibility for personnel services, and therefore implemented this recommendation fully. However, Correctional Health Services provided no evidence confirming that it conducted the audits or the results obtained. Accordingly, we asked Correctional Health Services to provide additional information about its auditing of leave reports, but it has not yet provided this information.
