Report 2006-115: The Carl Moyer Memorial Air Quality Standards Attainment Program: Improved Practices in Applicant Selection, Contracting, and Marketing Could Lead to More Cost-Effective Emission Reductions and Enhanced Operations (Release Date: June 2007)

Recommendation #1 To: Air Resources Board, State

To maximize the use of Moyer Program funds, the state board should seek legislation to revise state law to increase the 10 percent maximum proportion it can allocate for multidistrict projects. If the state board opts not to seek this revision, the Legislature may wish to consider it.

Recommendation #2 To: Air Resources Board, State

To maximize the use of Moyer Program funds, the state board should, when evaluating applications for multidistrict projects, assign more points to scoring categories that help the state board achieve the lowest cost per ton of emission reductions.

Recommendation #3 To: Air Resources Board, State

Also, to help ensure that the South Coast air district spends the allocations, the state board should continue monitoring the district?s efforts and take appropriate action should its efforts falter. If the South Coast air district does not spend the funds by July 1, 2007, the state board should initiate appropriate administrative action, up to or including recovering all remaining unspent funds.

Recommendation #4 To: Air Resources Board, State

To help streamline the process for performing preinspections, the state board should revise its requirement that local air districts must perform preinspections before executing contracts.

Recommendation #5 To: Air Resources Board, State

To ensure that it monitors local air districts? implementation of the Moyer Program effectively, the state board should continue to implement its planned changes to audit procedures and address the recommendations in Finance?s 2006 audit report, including the development of a risk-based approach to selecting districts to audit. As part of this effort, the state board should consider how frequently it will audit districts.
