Serco top Obamacare contract recipient being investigated by British government, Chief executive quits, Number 2 Obamacare recipient CGI embroiled in controversy and possible crony capitalism
“Public records indicate that during this time, every quarter from 2010 through 2012, CGI Group itself was lobbying on “HUD housing management contracts.”
Finally, there’s also a whistleblower lawsuit from a former CGI employee — who’d been recruited from HUD after overseeing the very Section 8 contracts CGI won — alleging that he was fired after refusing to go along with fraudulent plans to work around the bidding process. CGI denies the accusations, but has so far failed to get the case thrown out.”…Washington Post October 23, 2013

“Now, I don’t get upset when foreign and national journalists fail to mention Tony Rezko, or the Daley boys, or how the Chicago machine plans to staff the Department of Justice, and the new Department of Homeland Casinos.”…John Kass, Chicago Tribune July 30, 2008
Serco, the apparent top dollar contract recipient of Obamacare, is being investigated by the British Government.

“Serco boss quits as firm seeks new start after scandals”
“The chief executive of outsourcing firm Serco has quit as part of a major reorganisation aimed at rebuilding its reputation with its biggest customer, the British government, following a series of scandals.
The UK government, which accounts for about 25 percent of Serco’s revenue, said in July it would not award the firm or rival G4S any new contracts pending a review of existing ones, after an audit discovered they had charged for tagging criminals who were dead, in prison or not being monitored.
The scandal has intensified the debate in Britain over the outsourcing of public services to profit-driven private firms – a key strategy to reduce government spending, but which has also led to a string of embarrassments, such as when G4S failed to supply enough security staff for the 2012 London Olympics.”
“It is due to appear in the U.S. House of Representatives to explain its part in the troubled rollout of the “Obamacare” healthcare laws, though it is not accused of any wrongdoing.”

“Here is a list of contractors that received over $1 million in Obamacare contracts.”
Of course, CGI, the apparent number 2 recipient of Obamacare contract dollars (for now), is also embroiled in controversies.
From Citizen Wells October 25, 2013.
“Is this another case of Barack and Michelle Obama involved in crony capitalism or just poor judgement?
Toni McCall Townes-Whitley, who was in Michelle Obama’s class at princeton, is a Senior VP at CGI.”
