Audit Uncovers More Contracting Woes At Texas Health and Human Services Commission

The Texas Health and Human Services Commission continues to rack up scandals related to its contracting process. The most recent: a state audit of 28 procurements found errors in all 28. The state couldn’t confirm that the correct applicants were awarded in five cases totaling more than $3 billion. From the Texas Tribune:

Auditors said Tuesday they found errors in the evaluation processes for all 28 procurements they examined, totaling $4.6 billion in state money. For five of those procurements, those errors were more extreme: “auditors identified significant evaluation scoring errors and missing documentation” in procuring contracts worth over $3 billion.

The state says the error didn’t impact the outcome in the other 23 cases. More at the Trib.
