In the wake of two major corruption cases, the new board assigned to create a system of internal financial controls for state government and its contractors, vendors and grant recipients decided Monday to seek an outside consultant.
The draft request is still in development. It would call for proposals from consultants to work with one state agency, the Bureau of Finance and Management, as the first case.
The information learned during the development of controls for BFM could be applied later to other state departments and offices.
The draft calls for “Train the Trainer” sessions as well.
The proposal calls for a one-year contract with four one-year renewal options. The timeline is in flux. The original proposal called for a contract start-up of April 1, 2017.
