EPISD–purchasing failures

The EPISD mess over bond program contracts appears to be deeper than we have been led to think.

This slide is part of a presentation to the district’s internal audit committee:

The top item was an audit of a request for quotations process for bond program management advisory services.  Was the process conducted fairly?  Was it done according to the rules?

The internal auditors had estimated that it would take 590 hours to review the process and issue a report.  The slide shows that thus far the auditors have spent 1,771 hours.  The auditors issued their report back in November and are waiting for “administration” to approve their recommended corrective action plan according to this slide:

We do know that the district has cancelled the procurement.

The draft report will make for interesting reading.

Will people be held responsible for this?

We deserve better

    More hours at the task mean more hours to bill, right? Milk it, milk it…That’s SOP in this city.

      There are 2080 man hours in a year (assuming a 40 hour workweek). How many internal auditors do they have? Because leave is a line item, it appears they are employees (and internal audit teams normally are, that is why it is called internal bs external audit), but the total number of hours listed seems pretty high for a function that should be reviewing records (typically on some sort of a sampling plan basis).

    No body responsible for anything at EPISD. Nobody knows nuthin, nobody did nuthin, nobody heard nuthin. Just waste, tax, spend, tax some more. Cabrera has that BILLION$$$ Bond slush fund got to blow it off. EPISD- Inherent corruption.

    And El Paso Inc made Fenenbock and Cabrera “El Pasoans of the Year” for 2016 for their stunning success in getting the bond passed.

    Did you know their website was down this past weekend because they forgot to pay for their domain? They claimed there were having technical difficulties. Lies.
