Idaho insurance exchange leaders trimmed the Internet marketplace director's power to sign lucrative deals with vendors after criticizing her move to award a former board member a no-bid contract worth up to $375,000.
Your Health Idaho executive director Amy Dowd now must get the board's permission for any transaction over $15,000.
Beyond this strict new limit, exchange board members voted Tuesday to sever ties with Frank Chan, the former board member who got the contract.
Dowd struck the deal with Chan last week without first getting broad board support -- and was immediately met with resistance.
Chan, who quit his volunteer exchange board post to take the $180-per-hour technology consulting contract, canceled the contract on Monday amid complaints, including from lawmakers who branded the insider transaction as unfair and inappropriate.
