IG Says DAS Lacks Rules For Fair And Equal Competitive Bidding

The Ohio Inspector General's office says the state's government contracting agency lacks rules for ensuring equal and fair competitive bidding by outside IT vendors. TheIG's report says the Ohio Department of Administrative Services' contract process for information technology threatens the "fair, open, and honest market place" for businesses. The report recommends the agency do more to ensure competitive bidding and provide more complete documentation when such bidding isn't possible. The department says many of the recommendations have already been implemented.
