Establish a system of supervisory oversight that involves reviewing employees' time sheets and leave balances to ensure that personnel specialists are entering information into the leave accounting system correctly.

Agency Response From November 2013

Corrections created a new system that it hopes will provide the recommended level of oversight of the work of its personnel specialists. 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.
