In 2020, the city’s former director of the Office of Contract Compliance was convicted of tax and wire fraud. We undertook this audit to increase transparency around the office’s work,
assess its ability to meet diversity contracting goals, and assess internal controls.
- Contract Compliance reports showed that the city achieved two goals in only three out of the past 11 years.
- Contract Compliance’s could improve efficiency by better distributing its workload and using more software features. Three of its eight specialists are monitoring 70% of contracts.
- The office under-reported car rental agency expenditures by nearly $90,000 in fiscal year 2019.
- The office’s policies and procedures support city code requirements and several best practices but could improve by providing annual reports to City Council.
