Establish a system for correcting mischarged leave in the leave accounting system and for reviewing errors with the responsible employee whenever mischarged leave hours are discovered.
Corrections provided us with copies of completed audit forms that it used to identify and correct mischarged leave in its leave accounting system.
Corrections created a new system that it hopes will result in mischarged leave being corrected in its accounting system and errors being addressed with the employees responsible. This system calls for monthly auditing of a sample of time sheets, at headquarters and at each correctional facility, to identify errors in the charging of leave, correcting any errors identified, and providing training to prevent the identified errors from recurring. After the system has been in operation for awhile, we will examine it to determine where it complies with our recommendation.
