Albany At It’s Finest



” Top officials with the state Office of General Services showed us one of the doors we were asking about.

It turns out it’s a ten thousand dollar door.

The state paid for seven of them during the recent multi-year renovation and restoration at the State Capitol.

We move forward to February of this year. Heather and two top officials gave us a rather extensive tour of the 74 million dollar, 13 year project.

We still wanted to hear about the doors. Groll told us the projects weren’t bid in that detail and that expenses weren’t broken out by individual door.

After the story aired an engineer who requested we not reveal his name for fear of retribution wrote that “OGS lied to you”.

He explained that the state requires a BDC-187 Detailed Estimate for every single item and that the contractor will not get paid until the estimate is approved.
