WORK IN PROGRESS
Human Affairs Commission
Members of the General Assembly requested that we review the S.C. Human Affairs Commission. Our audit objectives address questions about the agency’s staff and board, the process for expending funds, specifically those for consultative services, and the agency’s compliance with contracts with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) regarding the handling of cases.
Department of Commerce
Members of the General Assembly requested we review the use of proceeds from a Department of Commerce state economic development bond by a nonprofit organization created to use the money for the purposes of wetlands mitigation relating to the site of the Boeing Plant in North Charleston. This review will focus on determining what the wetlands mitigation requirements were and how the money was spent.
Department of Health and Environmental Control
Members of the General Assembly requested that we determine whether the Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) properly regulates abortion facilities as required by state law as found in §44-41-10 et. seq. of the South Carolina Code of Laws and DHEC Regulation 61-12. Our review will focus on whether DHEC is inspecting the facilities pursuant to state law and how the agency verifies facility compliance.
