SUBJECT:              Audit: Renew Atlanta Bond Program-Contract Language

 

The purpose of this memo is to communicate the results our performance audit of the Renew Atlanta Bond Program’s contract language. Contract language should promote accountability and reduce risk to the city. We undertook this audit to ensure that Renew Atlanta construction contracts meet the requirements of city code and industry best practices. Contract language has ongoing effects throughout the lifetime of the contract - in some cases the entire duration of the Renew Atlanta program. Our objective was to answer the following question:

 

·              Do Renew Atlanta Bond Program construction contracts contain language appropriate to protect the city and promote effective performance in delivery of services?

 

While our review and recommendations are limited to the Renew Atlanta program, our recommendations are also applicable to construction contract language used by other city departments.
