Presidential Audit

What is the Presidential Audit?

In the President's Annual Evaluation, one of the items that he is evaluated on is the completion rate of the designated compliance trainings.

As a result, the Presidential Audit is the Employee Training Center's effort to work with course owners to get to a 100% (or as close as possible) completion rate.  

What courses are Involved?

Required Courses:

  • Conflict of Interest (COI)
  • CSU's Sexual Misconduct Prevention Program (Title IX)
  • CSU's Discrimination and Harassment Prevention for Supervisors (SHPS)
  • CSU's Discrimination and Harassment Prevention for Non-Supervisors (SHPNS)

A required course is one that we (CSUF) will report results back to the Chancellor's Office for.

Other courses:

  • Campus Health & Safety
  • Defensive Drivers Training
  • Data Security & FERPA

Other Courses are other classes that we include as good measure. We (CSUF) do not report the results of these classes to the Chancellor's Office.

What is Required of me?

As a course owner, it will be your responsibility to:

  1. Run the Presidential Audit Report for your course(s) at you discretion 
  2. Contact users that have or will expire by December 31, 2020
  3. Follow up with users
  4. Work with ETC to resolve any discrepancies and report final results

How you contact users and how often, is up to you. In the past course owners have taken the various approaches noted below:

  • Notifying / working with their Managers / Supervisors
  • Notifying / working with the users directly
  • Utilizing management meetings

Course Owner Communication:

(This applies to both Required and Other courses)

The ETC will be communicating regularly (starting in October) with the course owners to ensure that they are comfortable with the process, running reports, and are familiar with various resources.

Campus Communication:

The Employee Training Center (ETC) will send out one initial email letting the campus community know that they may be contacted for various courses that have or will expire by December 31, 2020 and need to be completed. This communication usually goes out at the middle-end of October.
