Overtime Management at the Bernard Fineson, Letchworth and Long Island DDSOs

OMRDD operates 13 district offices known as Developmental Disabilities Services Offices (DDSOs). We examined overtime management practices at three of these offices (Bernard Fineson, Letchworth and Long Island) and found that improvements could be made. For example, Letchworth would incur significantly less overtime if employees selected regularly scheduled days off that were spread evenly throughout the week instead of being concentrated on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. We also found that the DDSOs did not adequately analyze the causes of overtime to facilitate corrective action, and did not ensure that time and attendance records were accurately completed.
