    Psychological evaluations : a uniformed approach
    (South Carolina State Library, 2015-02-02) Bennett, Amahl; South Carolina Certified Public Manager Program
    Once the Family Court Judge issues an order for either a secure or community evaluation, a report is prepared by the DJJ Psychologist. The evaluation process may vary from evaluation center, circuit, or manner in which the report is written including how and what tests are administered as well as the length of the report. A document with this much importance that is provided to the court and used as a forensic evaluation should be uniformed in it's approach. This paper examines the possibilities through a uniformed approach in which a Psychologist can communicate through a well written report to Judges, Solicitors, Public Defenders, and county office case managers in a language that everyone understands without the use of an interpreter.

    ORS Audit Department Work Paper Preparation and Work Paper Review Process Standardization
    (South Carolina State Library, 2010-02-03) Sullivan, Daniel; South Carolina Certified Public Manager Program
    One essential function of the South Carolina Office of Regulatory Staff's Audit Department is to ensure that utilities file accurate and properly supported rate case applications. Without audit department review, utilities could purposely misstate financial information on rate case applications to obtain higher rates, more profit and more return for their shareholders, while unduly penalizing rate payers. Currently within the audit department, there are four audit manager's whose teams are completing audits, preparing work papers, and reviewing audit work papers differently. Managers and staff are following their own individual established processes, preparation and documentation standards. The purpose of this project is to investigate work paper preparation techniques, standards, practices, etc. with the goal of standardizing the audit department's audit processes, work paper preparation and work paper review processes. Standardization will assist in eliminating any discrepancies between managers and staff in the way audits are conducted and documented.

    Individual Employment Services Pilot
    (South Carolina State Library, 2015-02-12) Chorey, Jacob L.; South Carolina Certified Public Manager Program
    The purpose of this project is to address how to increase the number of consumers served by the South Carolina Department of Disabilities and Special Needs who access desired individual employment services in integrated, community settings from our network of contracted service providers, as opposed to other, center-based Day Services (i.e., in segregated settings). Supporting more of the agency's consumers to obtain and maintain employment would reduce the reliance on programs that are more costly to the state on a per-person-per-year basis and are already at or near capacity .
