Missouri handing out no-bid contract to group linked to state prison chief

In bidding documents filed May 15, the state announced it would be awarding a six-month contract to the Association of State Correctional Administrators to conduct an evaluation of staffing levels at the state’s 21 prisons.

The association “is the only feasible source from which to acquire the custody staffing evaluation services since it is the only national corrections organization to provide the required operations, management and staffing analysis,” the purchasing document notes.

Precythe, who was hired as the top administrator at the sprawling agency by former Gov. Eric Greitens in 2017, serves as treasurer of the association and sits on the organization’s executive committee.
