Los Angeles Community College District takes steps to fire third major contractor involved in its $5.7-billion construction program

 
Los Angeles Times
 
The Los Angeles Community College District is moving to fire a third major contractor it has accused of mismanagement in its $5.7-billion construction program as part of a crackdown spurred by a Times series on waste and abuse in the campus rebuilding program.

In a letter released Tuesday, the district accused Turner Construction Company, which supervised West Los Angeles College's construction program, of failing to inform the district that approval of projects at the campus would cause a $123-million budget shortfall. Four major buildings on the Culver City campus had to be abandoned or cut back when officials realized they couldn't afford them, the district said.

The Times reported in February that the nine-campus district wasted as much as $39 million on design and construction preparation work for buildings at West Los Angeles that were later canceled.

The district also accused Turner of having contractors perform more than $1 million of work without contracts, insurance or bonds guaranteeing the projects' completion, which the letter described as a "failure to follow the most basic contracting procedures."
