CDCR should revise the Institutional Worker Supervision Pay (IWSP) procedure to require that personnel staff review and ensure that an employee's direct supervisor signs the qualifying employee's timesheets and IWSP documents each month.
CDCR reported that the personnel officer at the California Institution for Women (CIW) identified several factors that led to this overpayment. In an effort to correct these factors, on March 1, 2017, CIW conducted training with its personnel staff about IWSP program requirements, including the signature of direct supervisor on each qualifying employee's IWSP dcouments and timesheets. CDCR also reported that it plans to revise its local IWSP policy by April 28, 2017, to meet this recommendation. However, we expressed our concern to CDCR that it is solely applying this recommendation at the institutional level rather than department-wide as we intended.
