AIA investigates no-bid contracts locally, looking for inside stories

Has The Economy Got You Worried About Your Budget?

If you are examining and reevaluating your personal budget, don't you think state government should be doing the same thing? We think so.

Arizonans In Action today issued Freedom of Information requests to the Arizona Department of Administration and 9 other exempted government agencies seeking information on open and sole source government contracts that the state has. Specifically, we are interested in contract information where state government agencies are requesting goods and services from contractors or suppliers.

Why? Well, simply, we want to be sure our tax dollars are being used efficiently, effectively, and that government is being held accountable to taxpayers who are funding all of these projects.

We will be putting together a report detailing our findings once our project is complete. But...



If you have not done so already, please sign up to receive our Arizonans In Action E-Newsletter and Action updates. We will keep you informed and on the cutting edge of breaking issues on Limited Government, Private Property Rights, Government Accountability and Transparency, and True Education Reform.


We are sending out the FOIA requests to get the contract data but we don't have the stories to go along with these contract negotiations. If you have some personal insight on the government contract process, we would LOVE to hear from you. Please contact us today!

We understand that you don't have the time to examine where government spends each penny of your tax dollars. Yet, we also know you do care that your tax dollars are put to good use and used appropriately.

Arizonans In Action is on the front lines fighting for Government Accountability and Transparency for all Arizona taxpayers. Please be sure to sign up to keep informed on how we are holding government at all levels accountable.
