Background and Discussion:

Harris County is required to have an independent annual audit of all state seized and forfeited assets held by the County.  These services are to maintain the County’s compliance with Tex. Crim. Proc. Code Ann. 59.06(g). This is the first renewal of a five-year agreement with Whitley Penn LLC for these external audit services.

 

 

Expected Impact:

None

 

Alternative Options:

This is a renewal of a vendor that was selected via an RFP with the Purchasing Department.  If not renewed, the Purchasing Department would need to go through a new RFP process.
