MD Lawmaker Wants Probe In Exchange Procurement

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - A Maryland lawmaker is renewing a call for an investigation into the procurement process of the state's health exchange board.
    
Del. Ron George, a Republican running in the GOP primary for governor, also called attention on Tuesday to political contributions that a winning bidder made before receiving a major contract.
    
George cited a $36.5 million contract for customer service call center work approved last year for Maximus Inc. In a statement, George pointed to more than $325,000 in contributions the company made to the Democratic Governors Association when Gov. Martin O'Malley was chairman.
    
Maximus has contracts for call center work in other states, too. The Maryland board approved the contract after a competitive bidding process. When asked for comment Tuesday, O'Malley said: "I have no comment on election-year politics."
