DANVILLE, IL. (ECWd) –
Last month I requested all records relating to the subject of GIS in an effort to determine if anyone besides us had complained of the no-bid so-called professional services contract for GIS service for Vermilion County.
What I received was an incomplete response, leaving out one particular letter. When I repeated my request and refered to this letter, I finally received it with the excuse that they thought is pertained to no-bid contracting and not to GIS services. When reading this letter for the first time, it is evident the subject matter was both no-bid contracting and GIS services and should have been provided in the initial request.
They have an interesting point, and I am inclined to renew my call for the Vermilion County Board to declare the previous contract void and put the GIS out for bid.
Please read this document in its entirity, and determine for yourself if you think the label of professional services can be indescriminately place on specific service just because you feel like it is and ignore all other evidence that it is not.
