2019 Annual Report

Posted on Nov 24, 2020 in Annual Report

Last year we published audit reports on agencies such as the Honolulu Authority for Rapid Transportation, the Department of Land and Natural Resources, and the Department of Education, and on subjects such as the Department of Health’s Deposit Beverage Container Program, and Mandatory Health Insurance for Clinical Victim Support Services for Victims of Sexual Violence and Abuse.

This report presents the status of agencies’ implementation of recommendations made by our office. Status was determined both through an independent, “active review” by our office and through formal requests to the agencies for a report of implementation status and steps taken toward implementation. This report covers recommendations made within the last five years, in reports issued from 2015-2018.

Summary

In this report, we specifically discuss the Hawai‘i State Department of Education’s (DOE) policies and procedures regarding department employees and students who are confirmed positive for COVID-19. We asked DOE for its current policies and procedures and to meet with department personnel who are responsible for developing and implementing those policies and procedures. However, DOE initially ignored and then declined multiple requests for information and meetings. Despite DOE’s lack of cooperation, we were able to find certain information on DOE’s website about the handling of positive COVID-19 cases on school campuses.
