Report I2017-1: Investigations of Improper Activities by State Agencies and Employees: Misuse of Resources, Inaccurate Attendance Records, Disclosure of Confidential Information, and Improper Payments (Release Date: March 2017)

Case Number I2016-0015

Recommendation #16 To: Corrections and Rehabilitation, Department of

CDCR should ensure that all CDCR and California Correctional Health Care Services organization charts are current and accurate and that the assigned personnel specialist has access to them.

Agency Response From April 2017

In January 2017, Correctional Health Care reported that its position rosters and organization charts were current and accurate. In addition, Correctional Health Care stated that each month, and as updated, it would electronically transmit updated position rosters and organization charts to each facility's personnel officer.

CDCR reported that on February 20, 2017, the personnel officer at the California Institution for Women (CIW) obtained the updated Correctional Health Care organization charts. On March 1, 2017, CIW completed a meeting and training with personnel staff, wherein it informed personnel specialists that they must access organization charts as part of the monthly IWSP review.

We expressed our concern to CDCR that it is solely applying this recommendation at the institutional level rather than department-wide as intended. In additon, CDCR did not provide an update regarding whether Correctional Health Care has provided the CIW personnel officer with position rosters and organization charts each month as indicated in January 2017.
