Chief Procurement Officer Voids Rauner’s $13 Million No-Bid Consulting Contract
Rauner’s Secret $63 Billion Medicaid Deal Under Fire
Chicago, IL – Bruce Rauner’s secret $63 billion Medicaid deal is under fire after a no-bid consulting contract was voided by the state’s Chief Procurement Officer.
Rauner snuck the $13 million contract awarded to McKinsey & Company into his $63 billion Medicaid deal that has been shrouded in secrecy. Cost estimates for the deal have skyrocketed 57 percent, and it’s the subject of separate House and Senate committee investigations.
“The Rauner administration broke state procurement law to sneak in a $13 million no-bid contract into Medicaid reform,” said Pritzker campaign spokeswoman Jordan Abudayyeh. “This deal reeks of the incompetency and unethical maneuvering that Illinoisans have come to expect from the Worst Republican Governor in America and it’s time Bruce Rauner gives voters the answers they deserve.”
