Effective corrective action plans

Effective Corrective Action Plans

  • State the problem clearly

  • Have “owners” who are accountable for results

  • Break the solution into steps (actions)

  • Identify the people accountable for each action

  • Set achievable deadlines & specify measurable results

  • Monitor progress

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.


Cap step 1 state the problem clearly

CAP Step #1 –State the problem clearly

  • Not Like This:

  • CapitalAssets List is not audit ready (Too vague)

  • In FY 2010, we reported capital equipment of $10M (Problem?)

  • This corrective action plan is designed to correct the problem with Capital Assets which was that we cannot explain the amount reported on the financial statements because the transactions don’t match up. (Not specific or clear)

Huh?


Cap step 1 state the problem clearly1

CAP Step #1 –State the problem clearly*

  • Like This:

  • The Capital Assets List is not current as capital acquisitions and disposals were not reconciled to the Capital Assets List last year.

Oh –

Now I get it!

*Internal or external auditor finding may already be specifically stated.


Cap step 2 owners who are accountable for results

CAP Step #2 – Owners who are accountable for results

Business Manager may have general oversight of entire CAP.

Area supervisors & district/school level clerks are also involved.

So who’s in charge?

Who’s accountable?

It’s a joint effort, but make sure everyone

knows their individual responsibilities!


Cap step 3 break the solution into steps actions

CAP Step #3 – Break the solution into steps (actions)

Weakness: The Capital Assets List is not current as capital acquisitions and disposals were not reconciled to the Capital Assets List last year.

Reconcile the Capital Assets List.

Solution or Step?

What if the CA clerk doesn’t know how to reconcile the list?

What if there isn’t a list of acquisitions and disposals from last year?

How do you eat a ten pound Hamburger? One bite at a time.


Cap step 4 identify who is accountable for each action

CAP Step #4 – Identify who is accountable for each action

Steps:

a. The District will determine if acquisition and disposal (A&D) lists were prepared

b. If not prepared, the District will obtain information from A/P and approved disposal forms

c. The District will prepare the A&D lists

d.The District will reconcile the Capital Assets list to the A&D lists

e.The District will resolve any differences.

Many hands make light work in the kitchen or at the office!


Cap step 5 set achievable deadlines specify measurable results

CAP Step #5 –Set achievable deadlines &specify measurable results

When will each step be done?

What does DONE mean?

TBD


Cap step 5 set achievable deadlines specify measurable results mr

CAP Step #5 –Set achievable deadlines & specify measurable results (MR)

Steps:

a. By DATE, NAME will determine if acquisition and disposal (A&D) lists were prepared and report back to WHO (MR = @DATE did NAME report back?)

b. If not prepared, by DATE, NAME will obtain acquisition information from NAME 2 and approved disposal forms from NAME 3 (MR [email protected] does NAME have Info?)

c. By DATE, NAME will prepare the A&D lists and provide a copy to WHO (MR = @DATE is A&D list done?)


Cap step 6 monitor progress

CAP Step #6 – Monitor Progress
