Luna’s WiFi Contract Is A Mess

Idaho lawmakers are pressuring state schools superintendent Tom Luna to rework the terms of a Wi-Fi contract he stubbornly authorized in July, but the larger questions of why this deal was done remain unanswered. Lawmakers were stunned when they learned that Luna was about to commit the state to a multiyear contract with renewal options for up to 15 years, at a potential price tag of $33 million. Many legislators didn’t know about the impending deal until contacted by a Spokesman-Review reporter. About the best that can be said of this mess is that public officials may be reluctant to procure services this way again/Spokesman-Review Editorial Board. More here.

Question: Is there anything left to be said of the way Superintendent Tom Luna handled the contract for Wi-Fi services with campaign donor Education Networks of America?
