This alone is utterly amazing.
In any case, Toni became a senior vice president in 2010. Since then, the CGI ship has come to port (or so it would seem). White House logs indicate that Whitley has been a frequent visitor at the White House, so all of the noise claiming that Michelle and Toni hardly knew one another is pure poppycock. For now, we'll ignore the fact that both women helped to sponsor lectures by terrorists while attending Princeton —it is a genuine attempt on our part to avoid a lawsuit and even more attention from the NSA, as we are no doubt by now regarded as right-wing extremists.
We have all heard from the real IT experts from Silicon Valley tell us that no one with any brains attempts to roll out something as humongous as a national health care system without running detailed system checks before releasing it to the public. Well, what I should say is, “No one with any brains except the government …” Something to think about for a few seconds while we transition to the next eye-opener.
Under the heading, “It isn’t over until it’s over,” CGI Federal has more pokers in the fire than the failed Obama Care website. We’re talking about a serious moneymaker here; no, not for the American taxpayer, for the stockholders of CGI (which I would assume could include Michelle Obama, held in trust).
Who handles Section 8 rental subsidies? Well, it has been a real money maker for CGI Federal; it earned about a quarter of the $300 million or so in fees that came from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. CGI Federal, it seems, is well entrenched with Assisted Housing Services of Ohio, California Affordable Housing Initiatives, and North Tampa Housing Development Corporation. In the case of the Ohio concern, its director self-identifies as “Manager of Consulting Services, CGI Federal Healthcare Compliance Group.”
No surprise (to us) that CGI Federal was found to have over billed the HUD by tens of millions of dollars (2009-2011), and this prompted HUD to rebid the contracts (setting a lower standard for profit margins). When the new contracts were awarded, many of CGI’s partners lost out. Understandably, CGI Federal wasn’t happy and so they sued. According to the Washington Post:
“Instead of letting the awards stand, the losers complained en masse to the Government Accountability Office, prompting HUD to back off those awards and offer another solicitation. This time around, HUD got rid of the cap on the number of units a subcontractor could administer, but precluded out-of-state entities from landing a Section 8 contracts if there was a qualified local bidder, which cut into CGI's business model -- some of the entities they worked with offered services to housing authorities all around the region, and wanted to compete for contracts even further afield. Obama's GAO ruled that the new process was a no-no.
“HUD decided to ignore the GAO. So the housing authority-affiliated entities appealed again, this time to the Federal Court of Claims -- the three that contract with CGI filed a joint complaint, saying HUD's award process was anticompetitive. In April, HUD won. But the companies kicked it up yet another notch, to the Federal Court of Appeals, where arguments were held last week. Until the litigation is resolved, HUD can't execute any of the new awards.
“Meanwhile, the Ohio entity asked its state's Congressional delegation -- where CGI does lots of business -- to include an amendment in this year's ill-fated Transportation, Housing, and Urban Development appropriations bill that would have forced HUD to keep the contracts available to out-of-state entities, which CGI wanted. (The legislators asked HUD nicely to do so earlier in 2012, to no avail). Public records indicate that during this time, every quarter from 2010 through 2012, CGI Group itself was lobbying on "HUD housing management contracts."
Well, but maybe all those trips to the White House … all those hours with Michelle reliving the good old days spewing out anti-White hate propaganda and inviting terrorists to convince Princeton students how terrible America is have finally paid off. According to one news source, CGI Federal (in spite of its Obama Care failures) was recently awarded five (5) new government contracts. A senior vice president remarked, “From our perspective, the system is working.”
It certainly is, Cheryl … it certainly is.
Wait, Mustang...wasn't Halliburton a no-bid contract liberals were horrified over, not understanding that you need boots on the ground THEN and THERE and it would have taken any other company NOT in country a year just to prepare for a bid? I wonder why this no-bid situation between Michelle and her buddy doesn't bother them, too!? (but I don't wonder long...) :-) Z
