Per 0.C.G.A. 50-18-99(d), each local government must adopt a retention schedule. Records retention periods can never be less than the minimum retention periods indicated in the Local Government Retention Schedule produced by the Division of Archives and History of the Office of the Secretary of State. Per Mr. Kelvin Walton, Director of Purchasing and Contracts, his department destroys all contractual documents related to watershed improvement projects after only seven (7) years. This is a clear violation of the twenty (20) year retention period set for such project records by the Local Government Retention Schedule. Additionally, Mr. Walton’s department regularly destroys select portions of RFP related documents (selection committee members’ individual analysis and score sheets), choosing to only maintain a finalized summary sheet for its official records. This practice too violates the mandated retention periods for local governments set by Georgia Law. We find these violations of Georgia Law very troubling. The destruction of public records which, coincidently, are now also evidence in an ongoing Special Purpose Grand Jury investigation must not be tolerated. Please carefully review all applicable retention periods for all departments and records classifications and act accordingly. The practice of destroying public records in violation of the law must cease immediately. ‘Thank you in advance for your prompt attention to this concerning issue. The original, signed letter to this email is forthcoming and will be delivered to your office this week. Regards, Cynthia L.

T will need additional time to look through hundreds of subject files to obtain the requested documents. My best estimate is that it will take approximately 4 Procurement Technicians an estimated 22 business days (3 hours per day) to search and copy requested documents. ‘As provided in 0.C.G.A. §50-18-71, the total estimated cost to search, retrieve and copy the requested documents is $4,250.40. This includes a charge of $16.0 per hour (per Technician) (no charge for first 15 minutes) to cover the administrative cost of assisting you with your request plus a charge for copies. The estimated time and associated cost for the Procurement Technicians is 3 hours per day for 22 business days x 4 technicians for a total estimated cost of $4,250.40. The fee for copies will be $.10 per page. I am unable to determine the cost for copies. If there are 400 copies then the additional cost for copies will be $40.00. Please contact me to make arrangements to pay this estimated cost. As soon as full payment is received, we will begin gathering the requested records. ‘The County and its officials and departments do not produce documents or records that are protected by the attorney-client privilege or the attomey work product doctrine under Georgia or federal law or that are otherwise exempt from production under the Georgia Open Records Act.

Deputies hire their friends on their teams to cover-up wrong doing in the department. * Changes in the Procurement and Contracting Department under the new leadership is “worse” not better. We have an obligation to find out the truth on this issue due to the multiple problems, alleged corruption investigations, and federal investigations involving several departments in DeKalb County, especially in Purchasing and Contracting, Contract Compliance and Watershed. Interim CEO Lee May has been billed over $600,000 for special investigators to make every effort to restore public trust. The public must be told the “truth”. After presenting evidence of wrongdoing and alleged criminal activity, we have an obligation to follow up on accusations especially when it involves the procurement and contracting department which is responsible for millions of dollars in contracts. Are we involved in DeKalb’s own version of “Erasergate” and “Cheating the DeKalb Procurement System”? It is important to increase transparency, ethics, and accountability in DeKalb County Government. It is paramount that we increase "Public Trust" in DeKalb County. We must hold our elected officials and their staffs accountable.

Sincerely, Viola Davis Community Missionary Phone: 770-256-0034 To: August 13, 2015 Holding the Accountable Responsible Tm writing to express the injustice of service for DeKalb County residents and employees cattied out by the office of Purchasing and Contracts. The office is breaking every procurement rule possible and constantly terminating, suspending, ot forcing employees to resign who speak up about inadequate policies. The turnover rate is extremely high from new employees and long- term employees which lead to a chaotic and unorganized work environment. Even with the extreme volume of tumover there has been NO internal help to examine the problem. The Human Resources department should be thoroughily investigated for allowing employees to be treated as such and not intervening to help, It clearly shows leadership is the problem and not the employees because we follow what os tell : S & and take the blame for their lack of experience and There is absolutely no professionalism nor leadership in the office, from the Director, to the Deputies who are constantly inconsistent to questions and policies of the daily operations. Management changes their decisions and processes every single day, so you're not clear on anything. There are no polices in place and the Director is happy with saying "it will come eventually”. He has been the Director well over 10 months and nothing has changed from previous management but @ANGHHGIENTIRE sisi lying and unfairness to the employees. It starts at the top but the employees are being punished for following management rules, (EBiNpSSSibletofindtilesairay eeumenty for days to even do the job. A ay happened with the solicitations. is gequisitions. I've been told by och ss cons Solicitations incorrectly by changing points after listening tolother committee members, ilsto score individually and then after hearing the committee members’ reason of their score, the procurement staf? and other committee members will then change their previous score from pencil to using an ink pen to coincide with the members which is clearly CHEATING the system which is approved by Scott Callan. Primarily procurement staff should not participate in the scoring at all in order to be unbiased and not to show any favoritism. When | was persuaded to change my scores, the contractor who had the lower score ended up with the winning bid. i ‘An investigation will reveal a huge number ofteraser-marks on:scoring’ i I witnessed two employees say to Deputy, Gaaammad they recommend the StandGuard Aquatics lifeguard contract be month to month until a new solicitation is competitively bided before given to the vendor. She stated "that's not how we're going to do it". She followed through with a non-competitive bid which did not allow other vendors an opportunity for DeKalb County business. She has consistently come up with her own polices not allowing fairness for all vendors and ‘treating employees like trash in order to put fear of not speaking up and telling the truth about correct guidelines. n thei i Some employees are allowed to get certifications paid by the budget and others have to pay out of their own personal pocket. If an employee asks about work related training/ certifications and Tequest for Department to pay there will be retaliation even though it's for work. But, Scott Callan, paid for the NPI 2015 award and the application was completed with bogus information that we don't do. It’s not a distinguished award and several agencies can get it because you pay for it. Employees are expected to work very long hours even though the work is not done correctly. There are no flex hours are teleworking benefits for the employees but the Deputies can do either. The staff is expected to complete the entire solicitation from start to finish, create language for contracts, develop contracts, purchase orders, LSBE marketing, and vendor management evaluation forms which creates high ctror margin and setup for failure, The Director has created so many steps without any area of subject matter, solid policies, or strong leadership to build a great working environment. The training is not useful because of the unprofessionalism by the ‘management team. We have meetings with Scott and the Deputies to discuss training but employees are afraid to tell the truth because the Employees are being bullied by the Deputies when in fact their operating purchasing and contracting in an unlawful and chaotic manner. We are receiving wrong and inconsistent ‘training from all top management and no one cares. There is never any sound decisions and proper codes of ethics done in the office. We are made to push out solicitations regardless if wong or right and when a problem is noticed an employee is used as an escape goat, when in fact the deputy told you to do it. If you show documents where you were told what to do or you dispute the way of carrying out solicitations you're personnel file will be documented so you can be fired, forced to resign or suspended so we have no support in the office, Employees should be able to come to work in a good atmosphere without fear of losing your job because of following bad instructions from leadership. Have lawful policies and procedures to help with day to day duties. We deserve to have faith in DeKalb County Government as employees with great leadership and policies and procedures in place to help do our job without being forced into CHEATING the system.
