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.
