Description

This investigation began from a tip from a Florida Citrus Department employee who contacted the paper "with a long list of allegations regarding administrative misfeasance and malfeasance in the department. ... Bouffard searched numerous records and the department had issued 56 no-bid contracts worth more than $2.2 million during the past three years. About 30 of them had been approved ... over the objections of the agency's purchasing director. ... The Ledger continued to investigate the department and uncovered more additional no-bid contracts, most to Supermarket Promotions of New Jersey."
