State Contractors Board makes annual report public

The Nevada State Contractors Board has posted its annual report and strategic plan on its website, reports the Reno Gazette-Journal.

According to the RGJ, the reports "highlight goals, potential challenges and opportunities for the 2011-12 fiscal year while looking back at accomplishments from the previous fiscal year."

The Contractors Board is funded from various licensing fees such as construction and engineering permits and does not receive money from the State General Fund.

In addition to the state contracts posted on TransparentNevada, citizens can use these reports to ensure infrastructure projects are contracted responsibly and not as pet projects for politicians.

The reports and licensing process can be found at http://www.nscb.nv.gov/index.html.
