Procurement Officer At SHA Leaves Agency

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — The director of the Maryland State Highway Administration’s procurement office is no longer with the agency four months after an audit found ethical lapses in the agency’s processes.

In an email obtained by The Associated Press and other news organizations on Thursday, the agency’s deputy administrator for administration announced the departure of Robert Gay earlier this week. The email was sent Monday.

Valerie Edgar, a spokeswoman for SHA, declined to elaborate on Gay’s departure.

In July, a state audit outlined ethical lapses in the state procurement process. The audit probed allegations received through a fraud and waste hotline about conflicts of interest involving several senior SHA management employees for certain construction-related contracts.
