Contract Oversight

The General Counsel supervises the OIG's Contract Oversight Specialists, who have professional expertise in governmental budgets, finance and engineering. Contract oversight includes proactive monitoring of procurement processes and assessment of contract performance that may include random inspections during the term of the contract. The Contract Oversight Unit provides real time review of County contracts from the beginning of the selection phase and throughout the life of the contract. This monitoring allows the OIG to work with County government to prevent fraud, waste and abuse before it occurs. Their final reports are published to the Board of County Commissioners and the Administration and are available to the public on our website.
