In accordance with the Act (110 ILCS 70/36b, et seq.) and Part 250 of the Illinois Administrative Code (Code), each university and agency covered by the State Universities Civil Service System is audited for compliance purposes once every three years. Audits of existing personnel programs are also conducted to ensure that each Employer is meeting the needs and expectations of administrators and Civil Service employees alike through the identification of problems and the enforcement of corrective action plans and solutions. Specific areas of review include the following:
- Assignment of Positions to Classes
- Pay Administration
- Employment and Separation Procedures
- Examination Procedures
- Statutory Exemptions
- Overall Personnel Program Evaluation
Within these broadly defined areas, compliance activities are conducted based on pre-determined risk factors through the sampling of data and documents, individual contact with both employees and various human resource staff members and employee personnel records reviews. A significant amount of documentation is reviewed and analyzed throughout this process, including position descriptions, payroll documents, employment registers, transactional documents, program enforcement, and many other documents.
