If the review identifies no issues, we send the agency a letter certifying compliance with Texas Labor Code Chapter 21.

If the review identifies issues in your compliance with Texas Labor Code Chapter 21, we send the agency a recommendations letter. Your agency has 60 days to consider our recommendations and report to the Governor, the Legislature, the Legislative Budget Board, and CRD whether the agency implemented the recommendations and if not, state the reasons for rejecting any of the recommendations.
