A state legislator on Monday asked for a criminal investigation into Kean University’s failure to get competitive bids for the purchase of a $219,000 conference table made in China.

Assemblyman Joseph Cryan, D-Union said he is drafting a letter to ask the Attorney General’s office to review Kean’s process in waiving the bidding for the table, which cost as much as ten times more than similar furniture purchased by other schools.

The Record reported today that Kean’s leaders had agreed to spend up to $270,000 for the 22-foot circular table that was installed in the rooftop conference space of the new Green Lane building at the taxpayer-supported school in Union Township.
