Accountability

Accountability Report to the South Carolina Department of Administration

All public institutions in the state of South Carolina must submit an annual Accountability Report to the state's Department of Administration.   The Accountability Report reflects the organization’s mission and objectives to achieve its mission. Objectives are assessed through associated performance measures, the results from which are reported in the Accountability Report. The report is intended to encourage institutions to give critical thought to legal mandates, efforts undertaken in pursuit of goals, and outcomes that have been realized in the past twelve months.  

Accountability Reports are published on the South Carolina Department of Administration website.
