Request for authorization to reimburse moving expenses in the amount of $11,033.19 for the position of Deputy Administrator of Evaluation and Compliance from California. At the time he was hired, the Department did not commit to pay for these expenses, but they did commit to submit a request to the Board for payment. This original request of $11,248.62 was submitted to the Sub-Committee members in September and deferred until October so the department could submit a revised expense breakdown.
Don Drum from Department of Corrections stated a decision was made by the department to very quickly bring an applicant in for the position of Deputy Administrator of Evaluation and Compliance. This complex position oversees private prison contracts and approves medical expenses. Mr. Paul Martin’s expertise and background is in corrections and contract management, and he was able to be on the job within two weeks. He went back to California for his family after two months in Boise. Some of the moving reimbursement is for temporary living expenses and the request is within the State Moving Policy regulations.
