FL governor DeSantis opposes new contract for Deloitte

All smiles at Deloitte India Hyderabad office with the new Brand ...

Did someone say “non-functional”?

Once bitten, twice shy.

“Gov. Ron DeSantis on Friday slammed a potential new nine-figure contract between the state and the firm that built Florida’s dysfunctional unemployment system.

Deloitte Consulting was announced earlier this week as the state’s preferred vendor for a potential $135 million contract to beef up Florida’s Medicaid data infrastructure. This happened despite an ongoing state investigation into how Florida paid the firm more than $40 million starting in 2011 to build what turned out to be a frequently non-functional CONNECT unemployment site”.
