Idaho Auditors Improve Process for High Dollar Contracts

Benito Baeza

BOISE, Idaho (AP) — State auditors say Idaho has improved how high-priced contracts are approved and monitored ever since criticism erupted over how officials handled multimillion dollar contracts.

Officials with Idaho’s Office of Performance Evaluation told a legislative committee Monday that the state is in the process of adopting most of the contract management recommendations suggested in a previous audit released almost a year ago. Lawmakers have also passed four pieces of legislation designed to improve oversight. Auditors said those bills prompted the state’s Division of Purchasing to develop standards for monitoring contracts worth $5 million or more.

Officials say that while purchasing rules have improved, many contracts are still exempt from the division’s new standards, including those issued by the Legislature, the judiciary and the offices of statewide elected officials.
