Andre Dickens has led the charge for the most sweeping ethics, procurement, and transparency reforms in recent Atlanta history. Major initiatives include:
- Creating government purchase card regulations to ensure accountability in how government officials are spending discretionary funds
- Establishing the Independent Procurement Review Office (IPRO) to provide mandatory independent review of all procurements over $1,000,000, helping to ensure transparency and fairness in government contracting.
- Worked closely with the City Ethics Office to review existing practices and create a set of recommendations and policies to ensure that our tax dollars are being spent with integrity, and oversight.
