California Energy Resource Conservation and Development Committee Is Not Prepared to Award and Monitor Recovery Act Funds and Lacks Control to Prevent Their Misuse
Concerns the preparedness of the Calif. Energy Resources Conservation and Dev┐t. Comm. (EC) to receive and administer fed. Recovery Act funds awarded by the Dept. of Energy (DoE) for its State Energy Program. This review found that as of Nov. 16, 2009, the EC had entered into contracts totaling only $40 million despite having had access to $113 million of the $226 million in Recovery Act funds it has been awarded. As a result, few Recovery Act dollars have been spent. The State is at risk of either having the funds redirected by the DoE or awarding them in a compressed period of time without first establishing an adequate system of internal controls. This is a print on demand edition of an important, hard-to-find report.
