Granite City Electric Supply Co., a Quincy-based electrical and lighting supplier will pay more than $2.3 million to settle allegations that it overbilled hundreds of state entities for items it sold under a five-year contract with the Executive Office for Administration and Finance’s Operational Services Division.

The Attorney General’s Office began investigating Granite City after the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) notified the Attorney General’s Office about concerns with the company’s pricing and billing on state contracts.

The Attorney General’s investigation found that Granite City had engaged in a pattern of overbilling that cost hundreds of public entities millions of dollars.

For additional information about the settlement, see the Attorney General’s Office’s press release.
