L i sample response

L& I Sample Response

L-4 How often and when does your agency’s internal audit function review your agency’s internal control systems for procurements?

Current Process - L&I’s Internal Audit performs an annual enterprise-wide risk assessment. Internal Audit uses the risk assessment to build an agency audit plan that may include audit or consultation services focused on the procurement process. A portion of the procurement cycle is included in the plan at least once every three years. In the event that an external auditor, such as the State Auditor’s Office (SAO), performs an audit of the procurement process, Internal Audit may rely on the external auditor’s work to fulfill that portion of the Agency Audit Plan requirement. Additionally, L&I’s Internal Audit reviews all corrective action plans to determine if previously identified deficiencies have been addressed. The last audit was performed by the SAO in 2010. L&I received two management letters, connected with procurement. The first resulted in three corrective action plans The three items in need of corrective action were: 1) No documentation that an eligible proposal for an IT contract was considered. 2) The department improperly reimbursed a contractor for a piece of equipment when the contract stated the contractor would provide the equipment. 3) Methods used to score two contracts were not consistent with methods outlined in the request for proposal. To address the corrective action plans, a checklist was implemented on November 29, 2010 and training was provided to the agency on April 17 and 26, 2012. The second identified four issues for correction in the procurement system. The result was a modification to the purchasing system to ensure all revisions to field orders required an electronic re-route for approval. The final system changes were implemented in May 2013 and are scheduled for testing by L&I’s Internal Audit early in FY14.

  • Future State - Development of statewide contract training requirements to provide consistency throughout all state agencies.

  • Mitigation Plan - L&I’s Internal Audit team is scheduled for May 2014 to test the procurement system changes that were implemented in May of 2013.

  • PPS-4 How does the agency use uniform tools/templates (task schedules) to facilitate its procurements?

  • Current Process – L&I has a library of standard templates approved by the AAG, as well as sample language that is housed in L&I's shared drive. The shared drive is used to create folders for draft word and excel contract documents, allowing access by all procurement staff. Procurement staff use calendars and tasks in outlook to help prioritize the procurement schedules. Purchasing staff cross trains staff on designated commodities and contract management duties. The Contracts Office uses ECMS to track contract end dates. This is a driving force for contract renewal. ECMS will notify contract managers and contract consultants at 120, 90, 60, 30 days prior to contract end. This allows time for future contract planning. Purchasing uses an Access database to track field order term dates.

DSHS Sample Response

P-3 How does the agency provide training and development support systems for its procurement professionals?

Current Process:

CCS offers a series of regularly scheduled contracts and ACD classes throughout each year. They include Basic ACD Training, Basic Contracts Training, ACD Styles Training, Advanced Contracts Certification, and Managing Individual Provider Contracts. Basic ACD and Basic Contracts are offered approximately monthly, while ACD Styles and Managing Individual Provider Contracts are offered quarterly. Advanced Contracts is offered twice a year. Registration is available through the DSHS Learning Management System and class schedules and materials are available on the CCS Intranet Share Point site. CCS offers these classes at no charge to participants. CCS also considers special requests to offer specific classes in locations other than DSHS headquarters provided the program requesting the class is able to provide an appropriate classroom and/or computer training room as needed. These special trainings are generally scheduled several weeks in advance based on instructor and participant availability. On an ad hoc basis, the ACD Administrator will also offer training to DSHS contracts staff around building and managing reports using the ACD Online Reporting tool. …

Central Purchasing Unit (CPU) for Operational Goods and Services:

Internal CPU employees undergo supervisor and peer training on the current DES delegated authority, DES policy requirements, DSHS Annual Delegated Authority Memo (see Exhibit A – FY13AnnualDelegationMemo.docx), and the Tracks e-Purchasing purchase order (PO) process when beginning their position. New Contract Specialist 2 (CS2) and Contract Specialist 3 (CS3) also complete the Central Contract Services (CCS) Basic Contracting, Advanced Contracting, and Agency Contract Database (ACD) classes.

DSHS Sample Response Continued

  • Future State (Planned improvements to process, if any):

  • CCS is currently developing an online training module for the Managing Individual Provider Contracts class. This will allow those who need the class to register for it and take it in the DSHS Learning Management System when it more convenient for them. The online version will include a quiz that must be passed to show proficiency in the material. CCS plans to develop additional online training modules for the Basic Contracts class as well.

  • The CPU FY14 business plans include enhanced online and WebEx training options for general DSHS staff who initiate a purchase request (PR) on the Tracks e-Purchasing system, and management level fiscal and directors who approve PRs. In addition to system instructions, trainings will include an awareness of rules and policies which field purchasing groups and CPU must follow.
