January 18, 2011 Investigative Report I2010-2e Governor of CaliforniaPresident pro empore of the SenateSpeaker of the Assembly State CapitolSacramento, California 95814Dear Governor and Legislative Leaders:Pursuant to the California Whistleblower Protection Act, the Bureau of State Audits presentsits investigative report summarizing investigations completed between January and June 2010concerning allegations of improper governmental activities.is report details eight substantiated allegations involving several state departments. roughour investigations, we found patients placed at risk and state funds wasted during the continuedemployment of an incompetent psychiatrist, misuse of state resources, theft of registration fees,and failure to protect the security of condential documents. As an example, we found thatthe Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation failed to promptly investigate allegationsof a psychiatrist’s incompetence, and in doing so, placed patients at risk and wasted nearly $367,000 in state funds as it continued to pay the psychiatrist more than $600,000 in salary while he was under investigation for nearly three years.In addition, this report provides an update on previously reported investigations and describesadditional actions taken by state departments to correct the problems we previously identied.For example, the Department of Industrial Relations led a civil lawsuit against a formerinspector in an eort to obtain reimbursement for $70,105 in improper payments she receivedand formally reprimanded the inspector’s immediate supervisor for his failure to monitor theinspector’s time and attendance.Respectfully submitted,ELAINE M. HOWLE, CPAState Auditor
