FINDINGS, CONCLUSIONS AND

RECOMMENDATIONS

 

EMPLOYEE PERFORMANCE EVALUATIONS NOT PERFORMED TIMELY

 

The Center did not complete performance evaluations timely.During the examination, we noted the following exceptions:

 

        10 of 50 (20%) annual evaluations were prepared 17 to 451 days late;

 

        15 of 50 (30%) annual evaluations were not performed at all; and

 

         4 of 50 (8%) annual evaluations were not performed on an annual basis.They were combined into biennial evaluations for these 2 employees.(Finding 2, page 11)

 

††††† We recommended the Center take appropriate measures to ensure performance evaluations are conducted at least annually as required by policy.

 

††††† Center officials accepted our recommendation.

 

 

OTHER FINDING

 

††††† The remaining finding is reportedly being given attention by the Center.We will review progress toward implementation of all recommendations in our next compliance examination.

 

 

AUDITORSí OPINION

 

††††† We conducted a limited scope compliance examination of the Center as required by the Illinois State Auditing Act.We also performed certain additional audit procedures with respect to the accounting records of the Center to assist our audit of the entire Department of Corrections.Financial statements for the entire Department will be presented in the Department's audit report.
