Audit: Kansas City Contracts Still Screwed



Quick reminder that years of promised reforms to KCMO contracts till have a lot of work to do . . .

Money line:

"The audit determined that city contracts are not centralized although city regulations require it. Some executed contracts are retained by the Finance Department, some by the Procurement Services Division, and some by individual departments. Some contracts that have been part of a contract dispute have been difficult to locate and the city has had to rely on the other party’s contract . . ."

This is by design to hide no-bid situations and political corruption in City Hall. Things will not change.

^^^^Yep. On point. Look up all of the East Patrol contracts. unqualified, undocumented, connected scam artists got the motherload of contracts. It looks like big payouts to well known companies but once they received their share, the money was distributed as handouts.

This is typical of both government and industry today. Both think contracts are an adjunct and can be handled as an "other duty as assigned," not realizing a good, dedicated contracts professional can save millions.

City Hall is not interested in saving millions. They are doling cash put to friends with benefits. Like all cheaters, they will be caught.
