Jan 24, 2014 ... To determine if the Metro-North Railroad (Metro-North) used American ... Metro- North, a subsidiary of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority ... To determine if the Metro-North Railroad (Metro-North) used American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (Recovery Act) funds efficiently and for authorized purposes, and whether the funds were properly monitored to prevent fraud, waste and abuse. Our audit covered the period April 30, 2009 to June 30, 2012. Background Metro-North, a subsidiary of the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA), has four projects funded by the Recovery Act, namely, Poughkeepsie Station Building-Doors/Window ($4.6 million), Grand Central Terminal Elevators ($7.7 million), Grand Central Terminal Facilities Rehabilitation ($22.7 million), and Tarrytown Station Improvement ($37.3 million). Key Finding • Our review of Metro-North’s monitoring of employees paid with Recovery Act funds found that Metro-North officials could better monitor their employees to ensure that Recovery Act funds are used for authorized purposes and instances of fraud, waste and abuse are mitigated. MetroNorth officials should improve the timekeeping method used for conductors to better ensure they are actually working the hours they are paid for, require that all overtime is pre-approved and justified prior to being worked, and consider whether it is the most efficient practice and whether government funds are being wasted by paying conductors 2 hours and 40 minutes of overtime every day for indirect tasks such as changing their clothes, washing up, and traveling to and from the project site. Also, an unannounced visit to the Tarrytown Station found one conductor was not at his assigned post when a train made a stop. Key Recommendations • Monitor employees’ time and attendance to ensure that they are only paid for actual hours worked. • Establish agency-wide policies and procedures that govern the use, pre-approval and justification of overtime. • Ensure the most efficient practices are in place and government funds are not wasted by paying overtime for indirect tasks such as employees changing their clothes, washing up and traveling to and from the project site. • Monitor conductors to make sure that they are on site and working at their assigned posts to better ensure the safety of passengers, contract workers and other Metro-North employees when trains stop at a station during ongoing track work.

#2 - Employment-Based (EB) Employer-Sponsored PR: U.S. employers are not required or obligated to sponsor PR for any foreign worker; it is the employer’s choice. If the employer chooses to sponsor a FN hired into an eligible position, the employer pays all costs. The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) has strict rules which focus on protecting U.S. workers, that is, no minimally qualified U.S. workers are able to fill the position and the employment of a foreign worker will not adversely affect the wages and working conditions of similarly employed U.S. workers. These rules include: 1. Eligible position: It must be a permanent full-time position. 2. Recruiting U.S. workers for the job opportunity: If a U.S. employer chooses to sponsor a FN for PR, DOL requires the employer to conduct a full bona fide recruitment to make the permanent full-time job available to U.S. workers. Though this type of recruitment serves the purpose for the sponsoring employer to document and verify to DOL that the permanent full-time job opportunity is indeed open and available to U.S. workers, anyone can apply since it is a full bona fide recruitment. 3. Job advertisement: The job requirements must adhere to what is customarily required for the occupation in the U.S. and may not be tailored to the foreign worker’s qualifications. In addition, the employer shall document that the job opportunity is described without unduly restrictive job requirements, unless adequately documented as arising from business necessity. 4. Wages: The employer must pay at least the prevailing wage set by DOL. 5. Recruitment report: The employer must prepare a recruitment report in which it categorizes the lawful jobrelated reasons for rejection of U.S. applicants and provide the number of U.S. applicants rejected in each category. The recruitment report does not have to identify the individual U.S. applicants; however, if requested by the Certifying Officer, the employer must submit copies of the application materials. 6. Audits/requests for information: The employer must provide the required supporting documentation if the employer's application is selected for audit or if the Certifying Officer requests it. 7. Retention of records: The employer is required to retain copies of application materials and all supporting documentation.
Much has been written about the need for organizations to improve their risk management capability. The collapse of Enron, the WorldCom scandal, the 2008 financial crisis, BP’s Deepwater Horizon disaster and the European debt crisis have all been examples called out by regulators and news media evidencing the need for more inclusive, effective risk management practices and oversight. The IIA and RIMS believe that collaboration between the disciplines of internal audit and risk management, can lead to stronger risk practices in meeting stakeholder expectations. The two functions make a powerful team when they collaborate and leverage one another’s resources, skill sets and experiences to build risk capabilities within their organizations. The adage, “the sum is greater than the parts,” certainly applies. And, it is clear that leading organizations have discovered efficiencies, better decision-making and improved results by forming strong alliances between the risk management and internal audit functions. Traditionally, risk managers have approached their duties with an eye towards protecting the organization’s assets and balance sheet, while internal auditors have been concerned with reviewing the efficiencies and effectiveness of internal controls. But before we explore how these two groups can form an effective collaboration, it will be helpful to take a more in-depth look at their specific roles and responsibilities within an organization. The Roles and Responsibilities of Risk Management Over time, the risk management function has evolved in line with changing business needs, in order to deliver recognized additional value to organizations (Figure 1).

Shirley Mulvaney, Simon Attard Montalto Abstract Aim: To assess the concordance of treatment of children attending with tonsillitis in Paediatric Accident and Emergency with established guidelines, and subsequent review of the management of this condition after a simple educational exercise. Methods: An audit on children with tonsillitis was carried out amongst doctors working in the Paediatric Accident and Emergency Department during a three month period in 2009. Eleven doctors completed an anonymous questionnaire requesting details on presentation, symptoms, investigations and treatment of children presenting with acute tonsillitis. The results obtained from this questionnaire were compared to NICE guidelines and modified Centor (McIsaac) criteria, and fed back to the participating doctors together with copies of these guidelines via a simple, structured educational exercise. Three months later, a second identical questionnaire was again completed by the same cohort of doctors. Shirley Mulvaney MD Simon Attard Montalto MD (L’pool), FRCPCH, FRCP * Chairman, Department of Paediatrics NPICU Mater Dei Hospital ,Malta. firstname.lastname@example.org *corresponding author Malta Medical Journal Volume 25 Issue 03 2013 Results: The first questionnaire showed that there was a tendency towards unnecessary prescription of antibiotics and investigations in children with acute tonsillitis, when compared to recommendations in the guidelines. Following educational feedback, the second questionnaire showed a reduction in antibiotic prescriptions by 9% (p=0.5) and investigations by 37% (p=0.1). Compliance with guidelines had improved significantly with regard to non-prescribing of antibiotics with a fever of <38oC (Phi -0.76, p=0.0005), and with tonsillar pus but no fever (Phi -0.68, p=0.002). Increased compliance was observed when prescribing antibiotics in the presence of pus plus a fever, lymphadenopathy >1cm and presence of underlying disease although these changes were not statistically significant. Conclusion: Although doctors were initially only partly compliant with established guidelines for children with acute tonsillitis, compliance improved significantly after a simple educational exercise.
