Case Number I2016-0015
Recommendation #18 To: Corrections and Rehabilitation, Department of
CDCR should enforce its current procedure for personnel staff to conduct annual audits of the Institutional Worker Supervision Pay (IWSP) program.
Agency Response From November 2017
CDCR reported that it is revising and updating its IWSP procedures manual. In addition, CDCR stated that its Office of Personnel Services (personnel services) anticipates completing training at CDCR personnel offices department-wide by February 28, 2018. Further, CDCR stated that personnel services will monitor the institutions to ensure completion of the annual audits of the IWSP program.
California State Auditor's Assessment of Status: Partially Implemented
Agency Response From April 2017
CDCR reported that on March 1, 2017, the personnel officer at CIW completed a meeting and training with personnel staff to reiterate the expectation for personnel staff to conduct a monthly IWSP audit and an annual IWSP audit each January.
We expressed our concern to CDCR that it is solely applying this recommendation at the institutional level rather than department-wide as we intended. We also asked CDCR to specify the steps it will take to ensure that the personnel officer at CIW will complete the required annual audit since one had not been done since 2013.
