Management of Energy Consumption (Follow-Up)

Issued: January 08, 2015
Link to full audit report 2014-F-18

To determine the extent of implementation of the two recommendations made in our initial report, Management of Energy Consumption (2011-S-4).

Our initial report, issued May 9, 2013, determined OCFS officials were not effectively managing energy consumption and had not achieved the 35 percent energy reduction goals set forth in Executive Order 111.

Key Findings

We determined that OCFS has implemented both recommendations made in our initial report.

  • OCFS has developed and implemented a centralized plan to reduce energy consumption.
  • OCFS now retains energy usage data for all OCFS facilities so reduction achievements can be measured appropriately.

Key Recommendations

  • None
