Abstract (Document Summary)

One of the first steps was to hire an architect to develop a building renovation plan. On July 14, 1988, MHRH forwarded a request for an architect to the Department of Administration. The architect finally chosen, Joseph D. Falcone of Cranston, did not sign a contract until March 18, more than eight months later.

[Mathies J. Santos] says that when he discovered the paperwork, he took things into his own hands. Instead of sending the architect list to [Fred Lippitt] and [DiPrete], he simply chose Falcone on his own. He says Falcone had not received much state work and this was an opportunity to spread state jobs around.

[Richard H. Freeman] of MHRH says that as the delays continued, half the appropriated $600,000 remained in a construction account. The other $300,000, earmarked for operational costs, "went toward the MHRH deficit" of more than $7 million in the 1989 fiscal year.
