Description

This investigation revealed that the director of the Ohio School Facilities Commission received favors from companies to which he awarded unbid contracts as part of the state's #3 billion program to build and renovate schools. Furthermore, the investigation showed how an ongoing campaign fund controlled by the governor to campaign on state issues was a slush fund for companies doing business with the state. Almost 90 percent of the school design and construction management contracts went to firms that contributed to the fund.
