I want an end to all "NO BID CONTRACTS."
Competition works wonders. Be open. Be transparent. Make competitive bids.

Gov. Ed 'Pay to Play' Rendell
The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review is reporting that the Rendell administration has awarded more than $800 million in no-bid contracts to companies that have political ties with Gov. Ed Rendell.
If this was a Republican governor, you'd have all sorts of investigations going on.
But this Ed 'Pay to Play' Rendell we're dealing with here. He gets a free pass.
The no-bid contracts were awarded Unisys of Montgomery County to run the state's data center for the next five years at $400 million, and $414 million in contracts over the past five years to Deloitte, a New York City-based company with ties to Rendell's administration, according to the newspaper."
