Two House Homeland Security subcommittees held a joint hearing on how FEMA contracts are awarded and managed. The committee heard testimony from a FEMA associate administrator, a Government Accountability Office (GAO) acquisitions director, and the Homeland Security deputy assistant inspector general for audits. Committee members pressed the FEMA representative on the awarding of a $30 million contract during Hurricane Maria in 2017 to Bronze Star LLC, which was ill-equipped to fulfill the contract, and urged the agency to reevaluate their process for awarding contracts. The company was to provide Puerto Rico with tarps that were never delivered. close
