According to an exclusive report from the Associated Press, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) handed another big hurricane recovery contract to an obscure company that clearly should have never been contracted.
Bronze Star LLC, a company that was created just two weeks before being awarded a contract by FEMA, apparently did absolutely nothing.
WASHINGTON (AP) — After Hurricane Maria damaged tens of thousands of homes in Puerto Rico, a newly created Florida company won more than $30 million in federal contracts to provide emergency tarps and plastic sheeting for repairs.
Bronze Star LLC never delivered those urgently needed supplies.
According to an exclusive Associated Press report, the Federal Emergency Management Agency terminated the contracts this month, without paying any money, and re-started the process to supply more tarps for the U.S. territory.
Whitefish Energy may have grossly over-billed the government, but at least they did something. This company did nothing at all.
FEMA reportedly canceled the contract with Bronze Star, but the agency waited a full month before doing so. Funding for relief and critical supplies was tied up on this bullshit company while people on the ground in Puerto Rico waited for help.
