So what's the big deal? What has changed since this management letter was released April 25, 2017? Why is not available in print to the public?
From page 14 of the management letter as it relates to the Elementary School Project:
Toward the conclusion of this section:
"We do not believe the current Treasurer or anyone in the Treasurer's Office have the skillset necessary to financially manage THE LARGEST PROJECT IN THE TOWN'S HISTORY and bring it to a successful conclusion. Therefore, we strongly recommend that the Town utilize the services of a consultant familiar with school projects in Massachusetts to assist in the administration of this challenging process."
hmm. Thought this project had someone familiar with school projects in Massachusetts "to assist in the administration of this challenging process"? This person is called the OPM - OWNER's Project Manager.
But who is the OWNER of the project?
