Abstract
The South Carolina Commission on Higher Education requested the South Carolina Office of the Inspector General, via a letter dated 9/2/2016, to audit alleged excessive spending by the University of South Carolina Board of Trustees (USC-BoT). This review’s scope and objectives were: Identify and analyze USC-BoT travel and event (T&E) expenses for a five-year audit period from FY2011-12 through FY2015-16 with emphasis on the FY2015-16; Determine the university’s compliance with all relevant state laws, regulations, and policies applicable to USC-BoT T&E expenses; Analytically review the university’s management controls on the general use of affiliated non-profit funds; and Identify opportunities to improve USC-BoT’s T&E policies. There was no evidence of intentional abuse or wrongdoing by the USC-BoT or the University. The USC-BoT T&E expense policies and expenses did not violate state law.
