Improve the controls over the payment notification Run 1 and Run 2 processes and establish a time standard to respond to whistleblower status and stage requests.
Clarify IRM and desk guide procedures, along with ensuring that they provide consistent guidance, to provide timeliness standard requirements pertaining to audit referral notifications, payment notification letters, and status and stage request responses.
Track and monitor compliance with timeliness standards for the audit referral notifications, payment notification letters, and status and stage request responses and report this on the annual whistleblower report. Establish timeliness targets and track actual performance against the targets.
