STAND. COM. REP. NO. 2091
RE: S.R. No. 31
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred S.R. No. 31, S.D. 1, entitled:
"SENATE RESOLUTION REQUESTING THE AUDITOR TO EVALUATE THE 2017 UNIVERSITY OF HAWAII INTERNAL AUDIT OF TRAVEL POLICY COMPLIANCE FOR FISCAL YEARS 2015-2017 AND REPORT TO THE LEGISLATURE,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to request the Auditor to evaluate the 2017 University of Hawaii internal audit of travel policy compliance for fiscal years 2015-2017 and submit a report to the Legislature.
Your Committee received written comments in support of this measure from the University of Hawaii.
Your Committee received written comments on this measure from the Office of the Auditor.
Your Committee finds that an independent evaluation by the Auditor will help to establish whether University of Hawaii employees and related personnel followed the proper travel policies and whether any suggested corrective actions were sufficient to address non-compliance with those policies.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your Committee concurs with the intent and purpose of S.R. No. 31, S.D. 1, and recommends its adoption.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
