4/8/2011: A commenter suggests that these Huron invoices are not complete. We are on that. Since we have an active petition in with the Attorney General, we are expecting that we will get a quick answer from UO this time:

I’m thinking that UO doesn’t pay out $1.5 million, $143K at a pop, without a slightly more detailed invoice. At least they never have for me.
So was there any more to the invoices? Supporting material? Description of the work product? Itemization of hours and expenses? I’d appreciate a quick response, and I will drop the petition if I get the complete invoices, or assurance from you that the invoices Huron sent UO do not include anything additional, beyond what you provided below.
Meanwhile, thanks for your consideration of my fee waiver request. The documents you provided are now posted at http://uomatters.com/2011/04/just-dont-make-johnson-hall-look-bad.html as promised. …

Another commenter points out that the contract has issues and may have been a violation state purchasing rules. I’m not going to pursue that angle – I don’t really care whether the administration is pissing my money away legally or illegally.
