Henry Waxman is requesting information on White House contracts with MZM:
As part of the Committee’s ongoing investigation into waste, fraud, and abuse in federal contracting, the Committee has requested information on a $140,000 contract awarded by the Executive Office of the President to MZM, Inc. in July 2002.
The contract with the White House appears to have been MZM’s first prime contract with the federal government. Subsequent investigations of other MZM contracts had uncovered serious irregularities. To date, there has been no examination of the circumstances surrounding the company’s initial contract and the role that White House officials played in the award and execution.
I wrote about MZM’s contracts Sunday night. I noted that much reporting needed to be done. It is encouraging to see Congress investigating this issue.
