The Ohio Inspector General says a state technology administrator wrongly solicited a 37 thousand dollar sponsorship fee from a company that has received millions of dollars in state contracts.

The IG says Stuart Davis, the Department of Administrative Services chief information officer, requested the money from CGI Technologies and Solutions for a 2013 corporate event in Cincinnati. Davis had signed and approved state contracts with the company. Davis denied to investigators that he solicited the sponsorship fee. The report is being sent to Columbus and Franklin County prosecutors and the Ohio Ethics Commission.
