Statement from City Councilors Igliozzi and Ryan Requesting the City Solicitor to Review the Process of Changes Made to the Speed Camera Contract and Why the Process Circumvented the Board of Contract and Supply
Last week, during a Committee on Finance meeting, we learned that members of the Mayor’s Administration had unilaterally renegotiated the contract for the City’s school zone speed cameras with the vendor, Conduent Inc. This action bypassed city purchasing laws and circumvented the public process.
As required by the City Charter, the contract should have gone to the Board of Contract and Supply and then before the City Council for public review and ratification.
Therefore, we have requested that the City’s Internal Auditor review the contract and process by which it navigated the system. We have also asked the City Solicitor to review this process as well, and ask that the Administration immediately send the contract to the Board of Contract and Supply and the City Council for a full review and rigorous vetting.
