Contract Rigging - Just One Example!.
A Tax bid for services using Oracle Service Cloud was canceled by Mr. Samson, Mr. Digman, and Ms. Geduldig.
The Tax team made a selection of a vendor and then Mr. Samson, Mr. Digman, and Ms. Geduldig changed the bid to select a friend of Mr. Digman’s (Unisys and MVP Naren Patel).
Once the tax folks complained, a different vendor was selected the bid was canceled.
This is a tremendous waste since it took almost a 1,5 years for the bid to go out to the public, time for it to be reviewed, etc.
Moreover, then canceled – regardless of the shady behavior, it was a colossal waste of time and taxpayer funds.
