Carolina Public Press spent nearly a month asking all 100 counties in North Carolina about their policies overseeing credit card use by its employees and elected officials. Analysis showed that county policies are all over the map when it comes to holding employees and elected officials accountable for the misuse of public money, especially involving credit cards.
Below, you’ll find how every county in North Carolina responded, with the original policies included, to our request for public records.
The majority of North Carolina counties responded. Some provided multiple documents explaining county policy. Some counties reported that they had no policy at all; others responded that they had no written policy. Those counties are noted.
For those counties that did not respond at all to CPP’s public records requests, it is noted; this will be updated if and when responses are received.
