Review of leases requested after report of unused building



BISMARCK – A North Dakota lawmaker says a news report of expensive but unused office space underscores the need for a review of all state leases to protect taxpayers.

Taxpayers are on the hook for nearly $3 million in rent over the next two years for unused office space in Bismarck for the state’s Information Technology Department that intends to allow most of its more than 400 employees to work from home indefinitely.

Bismarck GOP Rep. says it’s “classic example of the inefficiency and wastefulness of government.”
