The inspector general has some serious questions about how Ron Huberman supervised a contract when he was running the 911 unit — and some even more serious allegations about his aide, Adrienne Hiegel, who currently works at the Board of Education. According to the Sun Times story:
The report accuses her of directing underlings to “work backwards to get to $2.25 million — the cost of developing the Motorola software — by using 18,000 radio parts to add up to” the same amount. Adrienne Hiegel, Huberman’s top deputy at OEMC in 2005, was accused of “altering documents” and failing to follow the city’s procurement procedures. If Hiegel still worked for the city — instead of as a Huberman underling at the Board of Education — she should be fired, the 38-page report states.
Hiegel’s name hasn’t come up much on this site — the only mention I could find was a June comment from Retired Principal that listed her as the person in charge of writing the new job description for Chief Area Officer. But This isn’t the first time that Hiegel’s name has come up during a controversy. A 2000 Sun Times story names her as the person who allegedly violated the Shakman decree. So why’s she at CPS and has she been suspended yet?
