Mayor Gray amends contracting rules
Mayor Gray has informed all agency directors to seek approval on contracts worth more than $1 million "regardless of whether the contract was originally awarded before or after October 15, 2009." The mayor delivered the message in person and is sending a memo via email to ageency staff with particular focus on contracting and procurement staff. More on this dramatic change in practice from the Fenty administration is in this press release.
