Report I2021-1: Investigations of Improper Activities by State Agencies and Employees (Release Date: May 2021)

Case Number I2019-0989

Recommendation #5 To: Tax and Fee Administration, California Department of

To remedy the effects of the improper governmental activities this investigation identified and to prevent those activities from recurring, CDTFA should ensure that the administrator signs an Outside Employment Declaration form annually, as the agency's Incompatible Activities Statement requires.

Agency Response From March 2021

CDTFA reported that in March 2021, it served the administrator with disciplinary action to dismiss him for the improper governmental activities described in this report. However, the administrator retired before the effective date of his dismissal. Since the administrator is no longer employed with the agency, we consider this recommendation resolved.
