The Oswego County Legislature won’t be awarding a data management contract for the county clerk’s office when they meet next week.
An update given during Wednesday’s meeting of the Community and Consumer Affairs Committee had little to offer, said Legislator Amy Tresidder.
County Administrator Phil Church said that the committee assigned to review the request for proposals had not completed the work, Tresidder said.
The county has been attempting to award a contract for over 18 months as controversy has shrouded the process on previous occasions. The latest round of solicitation for proposals resulted in eight vendors submitting quotes.
Due to the controversy, Church is autonomously handling the process, something that not all legislators are comfortable with.
Following findings of conflicts of interest with the current vendor, Church said that all communication between employees and any of the bidders would cease.
