Determine whether Briarcliff Manor Union Free School District (District) officials used a competitive process to procure goods and services.
District officials generally used a competitive process to procure goods and services. However, they did not periodically seek competition for professional services.
- We tested 14 vendors paid a total of $3,961,336 and found that District officials used a competitive process to procure the goods and services.
- While District officials initially sought competition for all professional service providers we reviewed, they did not seek competition for three out of the six professional service providers in the past five years.
- Ensure periodic competition is sought at least every five years for all professional service providers.
District officials agreed with our recommendation and indicated they plan to initiate corrective action.
