Fiscal Review Committee to Eye ‘Questionable’ Contracts

Haslam administration officials are being asked to appear before the Legislature’s Fiscal Review Committee next week to explain two “questionable contracts,” according to WTVF-TV.
The committee has asked Haslam administration officials to appear at a hearing next month.
They want to know more about a contract to outsource the state’s motor pool to Enterprise Rent-A-Car.
No other company was given a chance to bid for the state’s business.
They’re also interested in a second contract to outsource maintenance on other state vehicles to Bridgestone/Firestone.
In that case, Bridgestone was the only bidder.
State Sen. Bill Ketron said in a statement:
“We will look into this matter. Our Fiscal Review Committee has worked very hard over the past 3 years to improve the process for procuring contracts to protect taxpayer money. We have a new procurement structure in place to help ensure fairness in bidding so that Tennessee gets the best price for our dollars, and if it is not working — we will most certainly fix it.”
