(2) No officer or employee of the Auditing Department shall make or approve or take any part in making or approving any payment for personal services to any person holding a position in the civil service if the Personnel Director has given notice to the City Controller that such person was not appointed and employed in accordance with the civil service regulations.

Purposes: 1. A civil service system to be effective, requires the cooperation of all officers and employees and their complying with the civil service regulations. This section imposes mandatory general and specific duties of such cooperation and such compliance upon all officers and employees.
2. Non-payment of salaries to employees subject to civil service but not appointed and not employed in accordance with civil service regulations is one of the most effective means for enforcing the civil service provisions of this Charter and the civil service regulations. Officers and employees of the Auditing Department are therefore enjoined from approving payment of salaries to such persons upon notice from the Personnel Director.
