COD- Category 5 Herricane – Deception Confirmed!

By Kirk Allen & John Kraft

On January 18, 2015

DuPage Co. (ECWd) –

Suspicious language in a contract with Herricane Graphics, as was referenced in this article, has now been confirmed and the trustees of the College of DuPage might want to pass things on to the appropriate law enforcement agencies once again.

As reported in the above referenced article, April 19, 2012  COD issues no bid contract with an Architect that is not an architect but is a COD Foundation Board member.

Article 1.1 of the contract has this sentence: “For the avoidance of doubt the Initial Information includes the information on Architect’s proposal to Owner  dated June 29. 2011″ (see contract here)

When I read that, it made no sense for a contract to include language of “for the avoidance of doubt”.  If anything, it pointed me directly to yet another Freedom of Information Act Request (FOIA).  I asked for a copy of the proposal that COD claimed was provided……….”for the avoidance of doubt”!

Just as I suspected, COD had no document responsive to the very claim contained in the contract they have with a Foundation Board Member owned business.

Not only has this Foundation Board member received a no bid contract, but it appears, based on FOIA responses, received the contract without even submitting a proposal for it even though it was claimed they did provide one!

For the avoidance of doubt, read the FOIA for yourself and start asking some tough questions!  (Click here for the FOIA response from COD)

  • Who placed the “avoidance of doubt” language in this contract?
  • Why place such language in the contract?
  • If a proposal dated June 29, 2011 was actually provided why would COD not have a copy?

It’s clear the pieces of the puzzle are coming together and the question now becomes who is going to hold these people accountable for answers on all of these dishonest representations?

    Note they say “the College” doesn’t have documents. Maybe they don’t have the documents sitting in a file today today; did they get them and then destroy them? Are the documents sitting in the college’s attorney’s office? Are they sitting at the Foundation’s office? Herricane’s office?
