Dallas ISD official’s dealings with vendor spark investigation

The Dallas Morning News reports that Ruben Bohuchot, the Dallas Independent School District’s associate superintendent in charge of technology, has been making regular use of a luxury yacht owned by Micro System Enterprises president Frankie Wong. Over the past few years, while Bohuchot was using the boat, Micro System Enterprises received millions of dollars in eRate-related contracts from the Dallas district. Both Bohuchot and Wong say their friendship, which led to the loaning of the yacht, is purely coincidental and has not influenced contracts negotiated by the distrct. DISD officials say they are investigating Bohuchot’s actions because, even if the two are close personal friends, the district would not allow Bohuchot to accept gifts or favors from Wong.
