To effectively manage its contracts, the Authority should develop procedures to detect and prevent contract splitting.
According to the Authority, all staff with responsibility for preparing contracts have completed the General Services' training on proper state contracting procedures, including the prohibition against contract splitting. The Authority's contract manual has been updated and provided to Authority employees who have responsibility for preparing contracts. To detect contract splitting, all non-state agency contracts are reviewed prior to execution by the contract specialist within the Authority's contracts and procurement department.
