Governor Hogan's actions are very welcome; however, more action will be necessary to create a culture of accountability in Maryland. For one, the University of Maryland, currently funded by taxpayers at over $4 billion a year, should no longer be exempted from state-wide requirements for fair procurement. For another, lawmakers should revisit their decision to exempt other agencies from state procurement law, such as the Department of Business and Economic Development. Finally, citizens should hold government at all levels accountable for following sound procurement practices. After all, it's our tax dollars they're playing with.
