The purpose of this policy is to provide a structure for monitoring, managing and controlling the use of personnel overtime.
All personnel of this agency must be mindful of and exercise fiscal responsibility in the use of public funds and resources. Overtime pay requires particular attention because it constitutes a sizeable expenditure of agency revenue that are provided at premium rates. Without adequate controls, unplanned expenditures can create budget overruns and divert resources from key operational areas. Therefore, it is the policy of this agency to effectively manage the use of overtime and that of each employee to use overtime in a responsible manner and judicious manner.
