Division of Human Rights
Contracts for Personal and Miscellaneous Services
For the period April 1, 2006 through March 31, 2009, the Division of Human Rights had five contracts with a total value of $2.32 million in effect for personal and miscellaneous services. We reviewed four of the contracts totaling $2.29 million and examined whether the Division of Human Rights 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 Division of Human Rights did not justify its need to award these contracts, was not adequately documenting the need to initially contract out and was not periodically reassessing whether such contracts could be deferred, eliminated or reduced. We recommended certain improvements in the administration of these contracts.
