Abstract
The South Carolina Office of the Inspector General (SIG) initiated a review in October 2018 of the College of Charleston’s (CofC) Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) policy and fee schedule predicated on a credible complaint that alleged the CofC’s FOIA policy did not conform to the state’s revised 2017 FOIA law when it received 16 FOIA requests in March 2018. The scope and objectives of this review were to: Review CofC’s FOIA policy, fee schedule and process to determine its conformity to the state’s 2017 FOIA law; Obtain a detailed breakdown of the fees associated with the 16 FOIA requests for greater transparency; Assess the allegation of the denial of records based on a claim of attorney/client privilege, and identify the redaction costs associated with this specific request; and Assess the allegation of potential fraud due to excessive costs/fees for the production of records.
