Missouri fully supports the electronic review process. It provided an opportunity for staff members other than program managers/supervisors to be involved in the process. This involvement provided ‘big picture’ knowledge of the program and how daily individual job tasks affect the outcome. Ownership of the program instead of going through the motions.

NE: Our office was moving during the week of the review. Not having to find adequate space for 3 review team members was helpful. It would have been a little stressful to try to work around the movers.

How easy or difficult was the process of scanning the documents for the electronic review
How easy or difficult was the process of scanning the documents for the Electronic Review?

  • MO: Missouri has a blue beam save feature to create PDF files or our copy machine creates a PDF scanned image. This process was easy for Missouri.

  • NE: Scanning the audit folders took a long time and some files were huge. Would have been nice if we could have sent some files in Excel or Word rather than everything having to be converted to .pdf.

  • ND: Scanning process went very well using outside firm to complete scanning of audit files given to them. Uploading process also worked well. The administrative information was scanned and uploaded by NDDOT Motor Vehicle employees. The process went much smoother than we anticipated.

  • SD: Most of our information is already scanned so it was fairly easy. The older data was still on microfilm so that did take a little more time to pull from film and then scan.

Provide a list of the electronic reviews strengths and weaknesses
Provide a list of burden(s) to the Electronic Reviews strengths and weaknesses.

  • Able to plan, organize and assign different tasks associated with document/data gathering to multiple staff members and assign a contact person for all inquiries/needs from the team.

  • Upload and submit data as it becomes ready

  • Communication was key to this process and it was outstanding and timely

  • Needed additional information about the upload site and functionality

  • Saves money and time

  • Scanning audit files was tedious

Electronic reviews

Most notable strength is being able to continue with other department tasks during the review as the review team is not in the office requiring much of our time.

Most notable weakness is not being able to review firsthand some of the documents being questioned. Better communications during Review needed.

How likely would you be to recommend an Electronic Review to member jurisdictions?

4 Likely

0 Not Likely

Electronic reviews

General Review Comments member jurisdictions?

How can we improve this process? What suggestions do you have for the next Electronic Review?

Explain the upload site and functionality early in the communication. Uploading the .pdf was easy to do but a clearer explanation would be good for non-techie folks. Once I understood the process and received access, it worked great!

Would be great if we could upload in Excel or Word.

The process of reviewing and discussing issues during the audit went very well. However the development of the final report regarding the review could be better explained. It was unclear whether we were to begin to respond to the findings or wait for another final report.

Once the files are uploaded, confirmation should be provided to the jurisdictions.
