Bernard Fineson Developmental Disabilities Services Office: Internal Controls Over Employee Separations (Follow-Up Report)

State-funded services to individuals with developmental disabilities in the New York City borough of Queens are delivered or overseen by OMRDD’s Bernard Fineson Developmental Disabilities Services Office (DDSO). In audit 2007-S-116, we examined the DDSO’s internal controls over employee separations (i.e., resignations, retirements and terminations). We found that some employees were overpaid in their last paycheck, because they did not have sufficient leave credits to cover the payments. We recommended that certain controls be strengthened to prevent such overpayments in the future, and when we followed up on this matter with OMRDD officials, we found that our recommendations had been implemented.
