Column extras give TSW blog users insights and information that inform our weekly State Worker columns, published in Thursday's fiber and cyber editions of The Bee.
Our column in today's Bee references the Schwarzenegger administration's legal outsourcing to Kronick, Moskovitz, Tiedemann & Girard. We thought you'd want to see the 2009-10 contract, which you can view clicking this link. We received the document from the Department of Personnel Administration.
The contract covers legal work beyond furlough litigation, DPA's Lynelle Jolley told us. (The $228,000 figure noted in today's TSW column, however, is what Kronick billed for furlough lawsuits.) DPA contracts out for legal services when it needs help with caseloads or expertise that it doesn't have on staff.
