Audit Report: Department's Management of the Smart Grid Investment Grant Program   [open pdf - 365KB]

"Our review revealed several opportunities to improve certain aspects of the Department of Energy's (Department) Smart Grid Investment Grant (SGIG) program. In particular, although the initial Funding Opportunity Announcement stated that Federally sourced funds were not to be used for cost-share requirements, we determined that the Department had approved one Smart Grid project that utilized Federal funds to meet cost-share requirements. In addition, we identified one recipient that was reimbursed twice for the same costs related to transportation. Furthermore, cyber security plans developed by recipients were not always complete, and did not sufficiently describe security controls and how they were to be implemented."
