DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH & WELFARE and STATE CONTROLLER’S OFFICE

28. A request regarding extension of blanket approval for the Idaho Department of Health & Welfare to pay physicians overtime at the Idaho State School and Hospital. This approval authority was initially granted in 2000 to allow payment of overtime rather than accrual and use of such time. The subcommittee unanimously moved to require an annual review for any approvals that exceed the caps or leave policy. A letter would be sent to the department affirming this action.

MOVING EXPENSES

29. The subcommittee discussed moving expense approvals and amounts. They questioned if there were any follow-ups to ensure compliance with the board’s approved reimbursement limits. After discussion, the subcommittee moved to have the State Controller’s Office spot check approvals of moving expenses granted by the Board of Examiners to ensure that agencies were following the Board’s guidelines and to notify the Board of any irregularities.


There being no further business before the board and on motion duly made and seconded, THE MEETING OF THE STATE BOARD OF EXAMINERS WAS ADJOURNED at 9:03 a.m.
