Tex. Gov't Code Section 2104.0215
Rehabilitation Plan in Lieu of Conservatorship


A state agency that agrees to enter into a rehabilitation plan shall engage the services of an independent management consulting team approved by the governor and by the presiding officer and assistant presiding officer of the legislative audit committee. The independent management consulting team may include the state auditor, one or more appropriate state agencies, and private consultants.


The state agency entering into the rehabilitation plan shall pay the costs of the independent management consulting team’s services from money appropriated or otherwise available to the agency, except to the extent that money to pay the costs is specifically appropriated or made available through the budget execution process for that purpose.


The independent management consulting team shall assist the state agency in developing its rehabilitation plan. The rehabilitation plan must include specific performance goals and the period in which the goals must be achieved. The plan must be approved by the governing body of the agency and by the governor and the legislative audit committee.


If the state agency does not adopt the rehabilitation plan within a reasonable time or if the state auditor determines and informs the governor that the state agency is not making sufficient progress in implementing its rehabilitation plan, the governor may appoint a conservator for the agency under Section 2104.021 (Mismanagement Finding; Recommendation; Conservatorship Order).


Participation by the state auditor under Subsection (a) is subject to approval by the legislative audit committee for inclusion in the audit plan under Section 321.013 (Powers and Duties of State Auditor)(c).
