A quick 15 minute meeting was all it took for school board members to approve a new contract for its existing audit firm.
During the special noon meeting at the district’s central office Tuesday, Los Alamos School Board Vice President Kevin Honnell and board members Thelma Hahn, Judy Bjarke-McKenzie and David Foster unanimously approved Griego Professional Services LLC, which just completed a three-year auditing contract with the district. Board President Melanie McKinley was absent.
Griego bid $135,000 for the new three-year contract that begins in July. Two other firms submitted bids including Accounting and Consulting Group LLP at $148,410 and Precision Accounting & Tax Service LLC at $152,000. All three firms are headquartered in Albuquerque.
