Inspector general says he won't meddle in awarding contracts
Nagin labeled that idea "inappropriate" and pledged to resist any "front-end" effort by the inspector general to "influence the decision-making process" when it comes to awarding contracts.
"Look, he can do what he wants to do, " Nagin said in a radio interview last month. "But I'm going to use the authority of the mayor that's there. And he's not going to . . . not on my watch. That's not going to happen."
His first notion is correct, the IG can do what he wants. Legally, Nagin can't stop him, or for that matter...any citizen...from examining the RFP's and the bidding process. Unless of course he illegally blocks access to public record which has been his MO from the beginning.
Welcome to good government, Ray. Its a bitch ain't it?
