Nebraska officials call for more transparency in bidding of future NU projects

Some current and former elected officials are calling for more transparency in response to no-bid arrangements the University of Nebraska has used on some of its biggest construction projects.

State Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha, former Gov. Dave Heineman and Omaha Mayor Jean Stothert were among those advocating for transparency and public bidding after an investigative report raised concerns about the university's handling of projects.
