Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance
Contracts for Personal and Miscellaneous Services
During the period April 1, 2006 through December 21, 2009, the Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance (Office) had 245 active personal and miscellaneous service contracts in place with a total value of more than $847 million. We examined whether the Office 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 reviewed a sample of 27 contracts and found that the Office was not able demonstrate that it had formally evaluated and justified the need for any of the selected contracts. We also determined that the Office has not been periodically reassessing whether such contracts could be deferred, eliminated or reduced. We recommended certain improvements for the Office to attain savings relating to these contracts.
