Each year, the RIA submits an annual report to the SC General Assembly, summarizing the agency’s activities and efforts from the previous fiscal year and in compliance with the SC Rural Infrastructure Act (SC Code of Laws 11-5–160).
RIA’s Annual Accountability Report is a tool used by the Governor and General Assembly to obtain an overall understanding of how RIA, as an agency, performed for the year. This report is to be used as a self-assessment tool and to aid toward continuous improvement in agency operations.
In order to promote accountability and transparency, each state agency must provide and release to the public, via the agency’s website, a report of all aggregate amounts of fines and fees that were charged and collected by that state agency in the prior fiscal year.
The RIA strives to be a good steward of the state taxpayer’s dollars by managing agency resources in a cost-effective manner. To view how RIA is spending your tax dollars, click on the link.
To report fraud, waste, abuse, mismanagement or misconduct within or involving a state agency, call the State Inspector General at 1-855-723-7283 (1-855-SC-Fraud), or visit the State Inspector General’s website to file a complaint online.
