Baltimore City is looking to hire a company to lead a review and overhaul of its “outdated, broken, ineffective and inequitable” procurement system, Mayor Brandon Scott said in an announcement Monday. The mayor is seeking to correct longstanding problems with the city’s procurement processes, many of which have been called out in recent months by some members of the city’s spending panel. The problems are related to issues of overspending on projects, lack of transparency and failures to meet minority and women-owned business participation goals and help such businesses grow.
