RE: Complaint Against the City of Oakland Park Purchasing Department
To Whom It May Concern;
I am filing a complaint against the staff at the City of Oakland Park for violating Florida Statute 119. In support of this allegation, I offer the following from the Broward Office of Inspector General to John Stunson, City Manager Oakland Park.
Purchasing is Not Retaining Communications Upon Which it has Relied to Amend Solicitations
City staff informed the OIG that the potential vendors at the pre-bid meeting were advised to submit their questions to the Purchasing Specialist and the Account manager via email. In reference to ITB No. 081911, staff indicated they had received numerous emails from potential vendors. At least some of the questions submitted by potential vendors were documented in an addendum to the bid. However, staff were unable to provide the OIG with the correspondence relating to the procurement. Staff informed the OIG that all emails pertaining to ITB No. 081911 were deleted by the Purchasing Specialist and copies were not retained in the file with the procurement. Staff indicated it was not their process to retain email correspondence with the other records pertaining to a specific procurement.
I respectfully request your agency thoroughly investigates this matter.
