Report I2011-1: Investigations of Improper Activities by State Agencies and Employees: Waste of State Funds, Misuse of State Resources, Falsification of Records, Inexcusable Neglect of Duty, Failure to Monitor Time Reporting, and Other Violations of State Law (Release Date: August 2011)

Case Number I2009-0644

Recommendation #10 To: Mental Health, Department of

Evaluate the senior official's workdays during the past three years to determine whether the senior official should have charged leave on workdays that he claimed to have worked but actually devoted himself to nonstate activities.

Agency Response*

Mental Health reported that it was unable to evaluate fully the senior official's workdays during the past three years, as we had recommended, to determine whether the senior official should have charged more leave. Instead, Mental Health stated that it found scant evidence of how the senior official spent his workdays even though it tried to reconstruct his daily work activities. Mental Health concluded that compiling the necessary evidence would require extensive work by staff to evaluate daily activities that occurred "long ago."
