Report I2023-1: Investigations of Improper Activities by State Agencies and Employees: Wasteful Decisions, Poor Contract Oversight, Overpayments, Misuse of State Resources, and Attendance Abuse (Release Date: May 2023)

Case Number I2021-0320

Recommendation #8 To: Correctional Health Care Services, California

Create internal procedures to ensure that HR tracks missing timesheets and notifies the appropriate staff of missing timesheets each month.

Agency Response From February 2023

Correctional Health Care responded in the report that it has a monthly audit process to review and correct leave input errors and to detect missing timesheets, but that HR had failed to follow this process. In February 2023, Correctional Health Care reported that it reminded all staff during its all-staff meeting about the requirement to process timesheets in a timely manner and to conduct monthly timesheet audits. Correctional Health Care added that it will remind staff of these requirements every six months. Correctional Health Care also stated that it met with the psychiatric program's personnel specialists to go over expectations, existing processes, and deadlines related to timesheet processing and auditing.
