A new report from the Legislative Analyst's Office says the state needs to assess its role in the MyCalPays debacle.
That conclusion is part of the LAO's take on the $14.6 million Gov. Jerry Brown's budget gives the State Controller's Office to clean up the failed payroll overhaul.
The budget doesn't include funding for an audit of why the project failed. The analyst suggests that an outside firm should assess the state's role in the project's demise.
Controller John Chiang's spokesman, Jacob Roper, said that the money for an internal forensic analysis wasn't included in Brown's budget.
The timing for such an audit "is still being developed right now," Roper said.
