Selected Payroll Practices at the Long Island Region (Follow-Up Report)

The Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation has eleven regional offices, including the Long Island Regional Office. In audit 2007-S-89, we examined the Long Island Regional Office’s payroll-related practices and found improvements were needed to ensure employees were paid only for time actually worked. For example, seasonal employees and their supervisors were not always required to sign the employees’ official time records, thus increasing the risk such records could be inaccurate or that the time worked was not authorized. We recommended that certain actions be taken by the Regional Office to strengthen its controls over payroll-related practices, and when we followed up on our audit, we found that additional actions needed to be taken before the recommendations were fully implemented.
