    Puerto Rico's Housing Department said Wednesday it will suspend a $133 million deal with a U.S. company hired to repair homes damaged by Hurricane Maria because a review board found the contract was improperly awarded.

    The department's contractor review board published a ruling on Tuesday that New York-based Adjusters International received the contract, which was subsidized by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, though it did not meet several requirements.

    Eric Perez-Ochoa, an attorney for Adjusters International, said in a statement that the company complied with all requirements and is studying the board's decision, adding that it was "deeply disappointed." He said thousands of Puerto Ricans were enrolled in the home repairs program and that crews were conducting nearly 1,500 home inspections a day, with 700 Puerto Ricans helping out. He said the company offered a savings of more than $20 million compared with the other proposal.

    :113:Dang...Again.
    1) Whitefish Energy: 2 employees responsible for re-establishing the electrical power grid for the entire island.
    a $300 million contract.

    2) Contracting aone-person company receiving a $150 million contract to supply 30 million ready-to-eat meals. (Needless to say, she didn't.) Only made some 50K in meals, some kind of MRE. The Gobmint should have shipped US. Old MRE's there.

    3) And now a $133 million housing contract to an unvetted, unqualified company.

    Gee The Great Douche can't even blame Brownie for ITS incompetence.
    Dang 583 million for what? Glad they were canceled to get better deals.

    Paying an adjuster $133M is not a good idea.

    I hate to say it, but this shit happens all the damned time when the gov is involved. Its why the gov sucks so bad at business related crap.

    If one wants to find some "good news" here; at least these folks are being shit canned, instead of just ignored and/or "re-stationed" (recent high profile examples, the fuck-up with the Hawaii alert and the FBI biased texts mess.)

    I'm confused, what does any of this have to do with Trump or his campaign slogan?
