TACOMA, Wash. —

An internal review of a statewide agency charged with improving 911 service concludes the office at Camp Murray wasted $700,000.

The News Tribune ( http://is.gd/KIFgVJ) found in public records that the Enhanced 911 Unit has nothing to show for a now cancelled technology project that involved three years of work.

Internal and external reviews of the effort call attention to apparent ethical lapses surrounding the project.

At the center of the effort was a purchase from a company called SAS - a purchase that managed to evade both an examination of its effectiveness and a competitive search for the right equipment.

The review documents obtained by The News Tribune mention inattentive management and poor project oversight.
