Our audit included obtaining an understanding of the methodology in place for
collecting and reporting Performance Indicator Results by interviewing key personnel,
observations, and reviewing source documentation.
The 2005 Business Plan contained a
total of 15 Performance Indicator Results; we selected all 15 for testing Health Care
Agency (HCA) supporting documentation. Our audit scope did not include an assessment
of the appropriateness of HCA Performance Indicators based on their mission, goals and
objectives.
We rated source (supporting) documentation provided as follows:
5 Star -
Adequate supporting documentation; 4 Star - Adequate documentation with
recommendations for improvement; and 3 Star - Noted opportunities for improvement.
C
ONCLUSION

Based on our audit of the 2005 Results reported in HCA 2006 Business
Plan, we rated 87% or thirteen (13) of HCA reported Performance Indicator Results as 5

B
ACKGROUND
:
We have initiated our PMV audits at the request of the Audit Oversight
Committee.
Our approach is to review performance measure results, assign validation
ratings, report conclusions, and make recommendations.
Our validation program is
designed to provide assurance to the Board of Supervisors, the County Executive Officer,
and the departments/agencies and other stakeholders that reported Outcome Indicators are
reliable and can be utilized in decision making covering Government resources with
confidence.
