Auditors: Oregon's juvenile justice system is flawed

Oregon's Juvenile Justice Information System lacks key data, and the Oregon Youth Authority has not properly controlled access to the system, according to Bill Bradbury, the Oregon Secretary of State.

State auditors also found that that the Youth Authority had not properly separated the process for implementing changes to the system from design and development plans.

The auditors recommended that the authority ensure that employees:

  • Enter complete data into the system

  • Improve processes for recording and correcting data

  • Modify system access methods

  • Appoint an official to oversee security and improve system change practices.

  • Youth Authority officials generally agreed with the audit findings and pledged to implement the recommended changes.
