Outside Reviews Too Frequent and Costly North Dakota Work Comp Director Says

North Dakota's workers compensation director claims outside reviews of his agency are happening too often and proving expensive.The review cost approximately $230,000, and took a lot of staff time.
North Dakota law states the performance reviews of Workforce Safety and Insurance must be done every two years. Auditors focus on specific issues and put together reports for state legislators to review. (WCxKit)
According to Businessweek.com, WSI director Bryan Klipfel states it would be better to have reviews for a period of every three or four years. Klipfel claims sometimes the agency barely has time to digest one set of recommendations when it has to begin preparing for yet another review.
Klipfel said this year's review by the Sedgwick Claims Management Services firm was overall positive and confirmed that WSI was managing injury claims correctly. (WCxKit)
