SCMEP’s Economic Impact

Helping South Carolina’s Companies Grow

All companies that engage in projects with SCMEP are surveyed to demonstrate both quantitative and qualitative impacts. These impacts convey how we help improve performance and achieve goals. Measured quarterly, and reported annually, client companies are surveyed by NIST through an independent third party organization. The importance of obtaining this objective data is ensuring that we stay true to our mission – Helping South Carolina Companies Grow.
