A day after Gov. Doug Ducey put the kibosh on contracts with lobbyists who contract with Arizona's state boards, commissions and other government entities, a state procurement official directed officials to hold off on the firings.

On Wednesday, the Republican governor signed an executive order targeting more than a dozen contracts with individuals and firms, saying he was ending a system where "lobbyists get richer" at the expense of taxpayers.

But on Thursday, an official from the Department of Administration's Procurement Office fired off an email to many top agency, board and commission directors, asking them to hold off on immediate terminations of the existing contracts.

"In an effort to ensure that mutual agreement is reached regarding the termination of procurements for professional lobbyist services, the State Procurement Office (SPO) is requesting that you do not immediately act on the contract terminations," the email said. "Instead SPO will coordinate the termination efforts."
