Government Can’t Explain Change in 2002 TSA Contract

The modification to the contract involved switching the interview sites for tens of thousands of airline passenger screener jobs from a contractor’s own assessment centers to hotels and luxury resorts.

Federal auditors eventually called into question an array of expenses, including charges of $525 for an airport shuttle trip in Tallahassee, $7,920 for beverage breaks at a Manhattan hotel and $514,000 to rent tents in Boston.

So let’s get this straight. Homeland Security changed from using classrooms to using luxury hotels, we got charged $343 million for this, and no one can explain why?

I want someone’s head on a plate.

    Anonymous DHS Guy says:
    “We thought about using classrooms but we were concerned about the presence firearms and the threat they posed to DHS employees. Also, one official was injured by a moldy ceiling tile when it fell on his head during a meeting. Litigation against the negligent school officials is pending.”
