After internal control changes were put in place within the College of Engineering and the University, our College developed a form for use when making entries in Job Data. This two-page form (or equivalent) is to be used to assist the enterer in making entries, and the approver in the review/approval of job data entries.
A recent management review conducted by the OSU Internal Audit Office made the College of Engineering aware that nepotism issues had often gone undetected until problems arose. Without notification from employees that possible nepotism issues exist, we are in some cases unable to determine if immediate family members are directly responsible for the decision to hire; or for the supervision, direction, evaluation, or salary recommendation of a family member. Although the University has a nepotism policy, the college decided it was important to initiate a preventative measure and created a nepotism form which would allow employees to disclose potential nepotism issues.
A recent management review conducted by the OSU Internal Audit Office made the College of Engineering aware that overpayments are occasionally made to employees for various reasons, including late terminations, late entries of changes to appointments, etc. Although it is the responsibility of employees to return overpayments, the unit is responsible for assuring that this is completed in a timely and accurate manner.
Salary Administration Policy
Each summer, the university begins its compensation planning and salary distribution process. This process includes determining annual salary increases, processing the changes and notifying faculty, staff, and student employees.
Internal control changes necessitated better documentation of personnel actions. An Employee Transfer/Termination Form was created for use within the College of Engineering.
