Report I2019-3: Investigations of Improper Activities by State Agencies and Employees: Wasteful and Improper Travel Payments, Improper Promotion and Hiring Practices, and Misuse of State Resources (Release Date: May 2019)
Case Number I2017-0489
Recommendation #20 To: Corrections and Rehabilitation, Department of
Within 30 days, CDCR should consider and begin legally permissible recovery efforts for the costs associated with the manager's misuse of a state vehicle for commuting purposes.
Agency Response From January 2020
CDCR informed us that it considered legally permissible cost recovery efforts and elected to not recover the costs associated with the manager's misuse of a state vehicle due to the statute of limitations expiring and the resources it would have to invest to investigate the misuse itself. Because CDCR did not initiate its own investigation within the timelines provided in state law once it received our report, it is now precluded from recovering costs from the manager attributable to misuse of a state vehicle.
