Company Connected to Biden Under Investigation After Winning Massive No-bid Contract

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is now investigating a Texas-based company that employs a former Biden transition team member after being awarded a multi-million dollar contract. The company called Endeavors won a more than half-billion-dollar contract to help ICE house migrants in hotels after crossing the border. The formal title of the probe is, “ICE’s Contract to House Migrants in Hotels.”

Fox News reports:

On January 20th, 2021, the very day President Joe Biden took the oath of office, Endeavors put out a news release announcing the hiring of Andrew Lorenzen-Strait, a former Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) official who also served as a Biden transition advisor on Homeland Security issues.

Less than two months after Lorenzen-Strait’s arrival, federal records show endeavors entered into a no-bid contract with the Department of Health and Human Services for up to $579 million and another no-bid with Homeland Security for $87 million.

“This is a no-bid contract, and those should be used in only the most extraordinary circumstances,” said Tom Jones of the American Accountability Foundation, a conservative-leaning watchdog organization. “It’s typical and it’s terrible. Both sides do it. It’s why we have a massive budget deficit and a debt going through the roof…There’s scumminess and swampiness on both sides of this but we need to root that out.”

Endeavors declined to answer questions about the contracts but in a statement to Fox News called Lorenzen-Strait “a valued leader on the Endeavors team. He is a recognized expert in migrant child and family welfare who consulted with a variety of for-profit and nonprofit organizations after he left his career in federal government in May 2019”

Republicans on the House Oversight Committee sent a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra over concerns regarding the no-bid contract. During Trump’s presidency, Democrats frequently cried out against no-bid contracts.

  1. No entity should ever be given a no bid contract, Unless it is an emergency situation. But even in that case it should only be as a temporary contract while full bid contracts are looked into. As no bids are usually very overpriced they should include a Government to reclaim any excess/overpriced payments made under the no bid contract. This should be done to ensure the company is giving a fair market price for the goods supplied and not scalping the Government and ultimately the citizens of this country. But my next question is why are they using Hotels? Why not the FEMA camps that are sitting idle?

    1. You really don’t think this new regime is going to play by the book do you. Biden is going to spend America into bankruptcy and we will be limping along for years to come. By by good times. Hello stagflation.

  2. We knew Biden was a crook when he took office. Are we surprised we have now become a third world country with apparently one party rule.That’s just how they do it in Venezuela. If you think that’s the only under the radar contract you will turn up I will sell you a bridge in Brooklyn cheap.
