The state agency that holds Maryland Public Television's broadcast licenses didn't solicit bids for a $2.55 million contract it awarded and mistakenly paid $72,000 more than had been authorized to another contractor, a state audit found. The audit of the Maryland Public Broadcasting Commission, made public Tuesday, said a three-year contract for direct marketing and fundraising was awarded on a "sole-source" basis even though at least one other vendor offers similar services, including a public media co-op.

Like many young professionals who work in or near Baltimore, Jon and Jenny Kraft searched for city properties when they decided to build a home together. "We looked at myriad different houses and could not find one that was designed for how we live and was also located in a walkable community," said Jon Kraft. His wife noted that parking, open layout, roof deck, fireplace and a minimum of three bedrooms were also priorities. They ultimately found a tailor-made answer to their requirements in The Townes at Locust Point, an enclave of 71 three-story brick townhouses built by Ruppert Homes Urban Redevelopment.

Wilson Bridge project contractor must meet deadlines or pay For Corey Heisey and Glen Burnie-based McLean Contracting Co., time really is money. As the contract manager for a $4.8 million grading project on the Woodrow Wilson Bridge, he has to get his people working fast to reopen the lanes. Or the company has to pay.

The Baltimore parking official in charge of managing contracts at city-owned garages "exerted influence" on garage operators to hire a firm owned by her then-boyfriend, according to the city's inspector general. In a report distributed Tuesday to members of the City Council, Inspector General David McClintock wrote that the actions of Bheti M. Woodberry "sparked serious concerns for many and further suggested a conflict of interest … due to her direct involvement in the security operations of the individual parking management companies.

KUWAIT CITY -- In the aftermath of the Persian Gulf war, Kuwait was a waste disposal company's dream come true. There was toxic waste and sewage, dirty sand and pools of oil. And above all, there was garbage, mountains and mountains of garbage lying uncollected in the streets.But it was a dream that nearly evaporated into a business nightmare for Waste Management Inc. of Oak Brook, Ill., a $6 billion enterprise that bills itself as the world's largest waste disposal company, which made it an obvious candidate for the Kuwait job.In the next few days, the company expects to sign an $11 million, one-year contract to provide garbage disposal services for the center of Kuwait City.
