The auditor's office found in January 2006 that two General Services managers charged 2,384 hours of overtime, much of which they never apparently worked. One of those workers admitted he exercised along Kanawha Boulevard while on the job.
The division paid a Pennsylvania elevator inspector $439,000 in three years. Several of the inspector's competitors claimed he was overpaid.
Auditors also discovered General Services purchased $88,000 of computer equipment between 2003 and 2006, some of which was used for an apparent piracy operation.
Computers, recorders and hundreds of blank CDs and DVDs were found in a locked office labeled "electric shop," located between the Capitol's east wing loading dock and the cafeteria. Hard drives of the confiscated computers contained thousands of music files as well as popular movies like "The Longest Yard" and "Troy."
Oliverio became involved in his own scandal in 2010 when he approved the installation of 56 dome-shaped concrete bollards on the Capitol grounds, which cost the state around $63,000.
State code requires the nine-member Capitol Building Commission must approve any changes to the Capitol campus. That did not happen with the bollards and, while they were intended to provide security for the Capitol complex, many considered them an eyesore.
The building commission eventually ordered the General Services Division to remove the bollards.
