3. Department of Administration, Division of Purchasing
    Request for recognition of assignment according to Idaho Code 67-1027 of contracts for services from Corrections Corporation of America to CCA of Tennessee, LLC.

    Discussion: Mr. Bill Burns explained that the assignment is complete with the exception of insurance for CCA. They have to ensure the assignment covers insurance for CCA and the Department of Correction. It is expected that they receive these endorsements by the end of the week. Mr. Burns requested to have the item placed on the consent agenda, subject to the endorsements being received by the Department of Administration.

    Mr. Hurst asked if they do not have all the information in time, is it essential this assignment be done this month, or would it create a problem if it were delayed a month.

    Mr. Burns answered that the timing is not a problem with the state; however, CCA has asked them to move the item along as quickly as possible.

    Mr. Kane noted that his concern is having the item on the consent agenda if the documents do not arrive.

    Resolution: Mr. Kane moved to place item 3 on the regular agenda. Mr. Hurst seconded the motion. The motion carried on a unanimous voice vote.

6. Idaho State Police
    Request exception to the Board of Examiners Surplus Property Policy to allow for the surplus and purchase of the duty weapon currently issued to Colonel Russell.

    Discussion: Mr. Ralph Powell explained that Col. Russell recently retired as director of ISP for 6 years. The Idaho code provides that upon retirement, a state police officer can have his duty weapon assigned to him, provided he has served 15 years. He does not technically meet the years of service requirement; however, this is the highest honor to be paid for a retiring colonel.
    He does not have 15 years of service to ISP, but the department would like to purchase the badge ($100), handcuffs ($21), and weapon ($525) to give to Col. Russell. The employees are contributing to the cost of purchasing these items for Col. Russell, which would be the exception to the policy.

    Resolution: Mr. Kane moved to approve item 6 and place it on the consent agenda. Mr. Hurst seconded the motion. The motion carried on a unanimous voice vote.
