NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The New Orleans Inspector General has released a follow-up report detailing city employee payroll withholdings.
The Inspector General found that the city made corrections when it comes to payroll liabilities. They are amounts withheld from employees for taxes, social security, health insurance and retirement.
The report examined a period between July 1, 2014 and September of 2014 to determine if the city made corrections it said it would make based on findings from a 2013 audit.
The report found that the city fully implemented two of three corrective actions based on recommendations spelled out in the previous report.
The audit states that the city took full corrective action to reconcile all balance sheet accounts on a regular basis by adding nine new positions to the accounting department in 2011. It also states that the city took full corrective action to avoid discrepancies between paper and electronic employee time records by converting to a payroll system that eliminates paper documentation and maintains records electronically.
The OIG states that the city only partially implemented the corrective action of regular reconciliation of Payroll Clearing Fund on a regular basis, but not monthly during the third quarter of 2014.
