REF: Post About Goofy Contract / CityPayments

Here’s a nice post from Chicago Muckrakers, acting on a contract I flagged as goofy over on CityPayments: Company accused of stealing millions from NYC and hurricane victims gets money from Chicago.

The City of Chicago has given over $7 million to Spherion, a company whose employees were targeted by federal prosecutors last week for its role in a money laundering scheme.Citipayments.org’s Dan O’Neil was the first to notice Chicago’s connection to Spherion. We dug a little deeper into some Chicago records and found that the company was originally awarded a $6 million contract, but has already received $7 million for “application development, support and ongoing maintenance” and “consulting.”
CityPayments is a nifty little research tool.
