The Controller should increase its efforts to fill vacant positions in its Mandated Cost Audits Bureau.
We worked closely with the Department of Finance to restore funding for the 10 vacant positions, which are identified in the 2010 Budget Act adopted October 8, 2010. However, of the ten positions requested, we lost four General Fund positions effective July 2, 2012, due to salary savings reductions. Consequently, we have 38 authorized positions. We currently have 37 filled mandated costs audit positions and are conducting interviews for the last vacant position.
Agency responses received after June 2013 are posted verbatim.
