    Office Depot to repay $289,000 in overcharges to California city
    BOCA RATON — The city of Berkeley, Calif., said Office Depot Inc. has agreed to reimburse the city approximately $289,000 after city officials discovered overcharges during an audit of their office supplies contract with the company.In a letter sent today to the city’s mayor and city council, city manager Phil Kamlarz said that the overcharges occurred between July 1, 2006 and March 31, 2009. Kamlarz wrote that Boca Raton-based Office Depot  has been responsive and “met with us in good faith.” But he added that, from now on, “monitoring of the office supply contract will be done on a quarterly basis to ensure compliance with the terms of the original request for proposal.”On March 17, Berkeley finance director Robert Hicks told the city council that at least $250,000 in overcharges had been found; the final number was bumped to $289,000 to include portions of time not checked in the preliminary audit.
