Manager Harden,
While taxpayers are appreciative to finally receive the information contained in the just released Bolderjack, Halsema Et al, forensic review of the Dunlawton Ave Drainage Improvements Project their report is incomplete in at least 2 regards ….. both of which need to be addressed to permit closure of this aspect of berm’s deletion.
1) The final question in your December 9th 2014 memo instructing that a forensic accounting review be conducted must be answered unequivocally. To wit
When Mr. Gianinni recommended approval of Change Order No. 1 ( Final), on behalf of QLH, did QLH have proper documentation to assure themselves, as representatives of the City, that Maci Corporation had given the City correct credit for deletion of the berm ? I agree this still needs to be answered. The e-mail to Masci requesting credit for deletion of the berm (last page of the attachment) does not mention the elevation increase on Powers Avenue as being deleted.
2) As between QLH and the Public Utilities taxpayers need to know who reported to whom specifically in this arrangement, AND how was that hierarchical relationship codified. Accordingly
What are the respective roles and responsibilities of QLH as the Design Engineers and Contract Administrators, AND Fred Griffith as the Project Manager in terms of the specific non-feasant and possible mal-feasant actions disclosed in both the Neff Report of May 14th 2015 and the Bolerjack Report of May 26th 2015 ? The attached contract documents specify the role and responsibilities of QLH for design and construction administration. We are still researching specifics on the responsibilities of the City’s Project Manager.
