       mile W@found "chat tile procedures, practices and internstr.
controls wwe fitdsquate, we- noted a nmber of minor discrepancies
which indicated that the inclependent rdew functions within t;he
Civilim    Persormel and the Ci.tiLian Faly-soll Offices were not
affective   in specific instances as illustrated     below:

     1,   One former Fort Ord employee WXLSSundeqmid about $7$
          bec&wm the CLViLfan l?ersonneL Office used the wrong
          salary rate to compute the seversnee pay funa,
     2,   Five former Fort Onndemployees received the fin&l swer-
          mce pfkpnent (raining      balance) at the beginning rather
          than the end of the severance pay period, becwse the
          Civilian  PaymlX tisinterpretated    the remarks on the
          sepamklxkg personnel. mzU.on, Errors, invoPving both
          overpyments and undeqmyments, in the pay of four of
          the five mployees totaled about $253, because they
          were re-employed by the Federal goverment prior to ex-
          hausti~   their sevemme pay benefits.
