JUDGE SAYS N.C. DIDN’T GET BEST DEAL

    Judge says state didn’t get N.C. taxpayers best deal on supplies
    (RALEIGH)
    - The state’s contract for providing staplers, ink cartridges and paper
    clips was mishandled and appeared unethical and unfair.
    That’s
    according to Administrative Law Judge Beeches Gus Gray.The lawsuit
    challenged the state’s six-year contract for providing such supplies,
    contending North Carolina decided to overpay for office supplies by as
    much as $10.8 million.
    Lawyers for Colorado-based Corporate Express
    said the consulting firm North Carolina hired to guide the state on the
    contract had done millions of dollars worth of business for winning
    bidder Office Depot in recent years.
    Corporate Express said in the
    challenge that state contracting officials rejected its bid for the
    business, which it said was the lowest, in favor of an $18.2 million
    contract with Florida-based Office Depot.
    After four days of testimony, the judge said the state did not get taxpayers the best deal it could.
    Gray, who did not void the contract, said he expects the state to make changes soon.
