Authority/Reference(s) Texas Human Resource Code, Title 2 § 40.058
Revision Date February 1, 2019

Policy

Contract divisions must determine the most appropriate review location to conduct the monitoring activities, which are identified in SCOR as on-site or desk review as defined below.

When selecting the monitoring review location, contract divisions should ensure that the quality of the monitoring conducted would not be compromised by the location selected. Regardless of monitoring location, the responsibilities and procedures should remain the same.

When a risk based or enhanced monitoring event is entered into SCOR, the contract monitoring review location will default to on-site.  If the decision is made to complete a desk review, the contract staff must change the contract monitoring location from on-site to desk review. 

On-Site

On-site monitoring is contract monitoring conducted at the contractor’s office or service delivery location.

Desk Review

A desk review is contract monitoring conducted at a location other than the contractor’s office or service delivery location.
