JAMESTOWN – An audit released through State Comptroller Thomas P. DiNapoli on Thursday has faulted the City of Jamestown for failing to review its procurement policy annually, as required by law.

The report said the Board of Public Utilities failed to seek bids for purchases from six vendors who were paid $387,763 and did not seek competition, such as using requests for proposals, when procuring $596,763 in professional services.
