A Review of the Budget and Control Board's Energy Office Operations and the Board's Hiring Practices
Members of the General Assembly requested that the Legislative Audit Council review the operations of the South Carolina Budget and Control Board’s (B&CB) energy office. The requesters were specifically concerned about the administration of energy grants and loans by the South Carolina Energy Office (SCEO). Our review found areas where administration of loans and grants could be improved.
The requesters were also concerned about the hiring of Budget and Control Board employees with high salaries, specifically those with salaries of $50,000 or more. We did not identify significant problems with the board’s hiring practices.
