Eye On Boise

Because he’s a ‘tough negotiator’

Among the one-time funds that JFAC cut from the current year’s budget yesterday, saving $20 million that could help cushion against school budget cuts next year, was $100,000 from the Office of Performance Evaluations, which represents the savings on this year’s transportation audit. Lawmakers had budgeted $550,000 for the audit, but it came in at $450,000. Olympia consultant Bob Thomas, who worked on the audit, when asked why it cost less than expected, said, “Because Rakesh is a tough negotiator.” That would be Rakesh Mohan, head of the Office of Performance Evaluations.
