The Department performed certain contract oversight functions as required, including providing quarterly status reports on the development of TxEVER to the Quality Assurance Team.
The Department also ensured that the assigned contract managers had required certifications and it developed an enhanced monitoring plan for the TxEVER contract as required by the
Commission and its Contract Management Handbook. The Department also provided status reports on the development of TxEVER to the Commission’s executive commissioner in compliance with the
Sunset Advisory Commission’s recommendations.
However, the Department did not ensure that certain contract monitoring reviews and other selected monitoring activities were performed as required by the Department’s enhanced monitoring plan for the contract.
