As directed by your Board, HRD will provide a monthly status report on implementation of the Performance Audit recommendations for HRD.   The report will provide your Board and the public with information on the actions being taken by HRD in the following areas: Organizational Development and Training, Employee Relations, Compliance and Reporting, Employee Benefits, and Labor Relations.

 

The primary items detailed in this progress report are the recommendations that required a 30-45 day response to the Board and additional recommendations that have been implemented.  The November and subsequent progress reports will provide your Board with an update on all of the remaining recommendations.

 

 

 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

 

In May 2011, the Performance Audit Department released an audit of the Human Resources Department (HRD).  The HRD Audit Subcommittee was established on June 7, 2011 to review the findings and recommendations.  On August 9, 2011, your Board approved the recommendations of the HRD Audit Subcommittee and directed HRD to report back in open session on several items within 30-45 days.  The attached progress report includes summaries for those items as well as additional items completed since release of the audit.  Future progress reports will include progress summaries for all recommendations. 

 

In addition, your Board directed the CEO to return with a listing of additional resources required to implement all of the approved recommendations in a timely manner.  Those resources are listed in Exhibit 4 for your Board’s consideration.
