Someone at SEWRPC needs to read a best practices procurement manual.
Here's another cozy, scratch-my-back-I'll-scratch-yours-let's-take-care-of-each-other deal under which a $50K consultant contract is handed without any ol' nasty competition, to Dan Boyce and Jon Wellhoefer, who just happen to be former deputy Department of City Development commissioners under SEWRPC Treasurer Bill Drew.
The two old friends are to study the central city's 30th Street Industrial Corridor. They are doing this from an office in the Milwaukee County Research Park in western Wauwatosa. SEWRPC is paying the rent. You'll never guess who the executive director of the Research Park is. Surprise! It's ... Bill Drew!
The stench from this one will take a while to clear.
