Department of Taxation and Finance

Contracts for Personal and Miscellaneous Services

During our three-year audit period, the Department of Taxation and Finance had 81 contracts for personal and miscellaneous services totaling about $563 million. More than 98 percent of this amount related to contracts for either information technology or banking services. We examined whether the Department was adequately justifying the need to initially contract out for such services and periodically reassessing whether such contracts could be deferred, eliminated or reduced to save State funds. We found that the Department was sometimes performing these activities, but not always. We recommended certain improvements in the Departmentís administration of such contracts.
