As of October 31, 2020, the Office had expended $81.8 million of its Alamo Complex appropriations. The Office used its appropriations for allowable purposes as defined in
Chapter 31 of the Texas Natural Resources Code and the General Appropriations Acts (84th through 86th Legislatures).
Auditors tested a total of 90 expenditures, including 30 expenditures selected based on risk and 60 expenditures selected randomly.
The Office ensured that those expenditures were supported, accurate, approved, paid in the correct amount, and used for the purposes defined by Chapter 31 of the
Texas Natural Resources Code and Rider 16b, page VI-31, General Appropriations Act (85th Legislature). Only one of the expenditures tested was not paid for the correct amount.
That expenditure, which auditors selected based on risk, was underpaid by $2,761.
Of the $81.8 million in Alamo Complex funds the Office expended between September 1, 2015, and October 31, 2020, $1.6 million (2 percent) were for indirect administrative costs.
The Office has interpreted the requirements governing Alamo Complex appropriations to include indirect costs for administering the program.
