Attached is the OIG's Annual Work Plan for Fiscal Year 2017. This Work Plan describes the work that the OIG plans to undertake in the upcoming fiscal year. It includes the audit plans for the Internal Audit and Contract Audit Units, and a description of the ongoing and future work of the Investigations Unit.
The work described in the Work Plan may change as the year progresses due to events that require modifications to it. Our Work Plan is intended to be dynamic and flexible, so that we are able to be responsive to emerging risks and changing priorities.
The FY 2017 OIG Annual Work Plan was approved by the Board of Education at the June 21, 2016 Regular Board Meeting.
This Annual Report is required by the OIG’s Charter and contains our accomplishments for the period July 1, 2015 through June 30, 2016. This report is intended to provide information about the OIG, how we are organized and what we accomplished in FY 2016.
The LAUSD Board of Education passed the LAUSD Whistleblower Protection Policy on February 12th, 2002. The Whistleblower Policy protects District employees who make allegations of improper governmental activity from retaliation or reprisal from the District.
The OIG created a Handbook for Contractors to assist LAUSD contractors in understanding applicable requirements for audits conducted by the OIG’s Contract Audit Unit and to help ease the contract audit process. The information and examples in the booklet are intended solely to provide better insight into the audit process and should not be construed as uniform mandatory guidelines. This booklet also should not be considered a substitute for the applicable rules, regulations and contractual terms, since not all requirements are contained herein. Each contractor must tailor its responses to its individual situation.
