Unfrickinbelieveable Waste & Sloppiness at DJS

Bykowicz reports an audit found the Dept of Juvenile Services lost $3 million due to "improper documentation" (yeah right) and ps., "The agency's failure to submit contracts to the state Board of Public Works on time, meanwhile, forced the spending panel to approve nearly $150 million in agreements after work had already begun."
