TKC EXCLUSIVE!!! NEW KANSAS CITY AIRPORT CONTRACT WINNER RECENTLY QUIT CITY HALL BEFORE HER COMPANY EARNED BIG MONEY BID DESPITE ONE-YEAR 'SEPARATION' REQUIREMENT!!!
A recent bid for a juicy new KCI airport contract has evoked quite a bit of local contracting company concern over fairness and insider deals.
The basics that prove we know the score but want to stay out of court on this drama that's already got local companies in a tizzy:
"The lady in question recently worked for City Hall and left in November of 2018 to form her own consulting company. She "partnered" with another local biz in order to win an EPIC contract that will rule over the majority of airport construction. After outcry from local biz, the City Manager's office was forced to answer concerns.
Why did construction companies cry foul??? There's a longstanding "separation" rule wherein city employees are required to wait at least one-year before they can chase City Hall biz. The defense of the lady's partnership: 12th & Oak leaders claim she will not have any contact with City Hall DESPITE the winning bid that will have contact and report on nearly every company working on the new airport project"
The upshot . . .
- Already we're seeing companies cry foul in how new KCI airport contracts are awarded.
- Minority and women-owned biz concerns lead the way in pointing out new KCI unfair practices as City Hall insiders ALLEGEDLY push out more qualified minority bidders.
- The debate over contracts and insider connections at City Hall is important as critics have identified this instance in order to complain about overall 12th & Oak corruption already endangering the project.
To wit . . .
THE FIGHT OVER NEW KCI CONTRACTS STARTS NOW AND CLAIMS THAT FORMER CITY HALL WORKERS EARN PREFERENTIAL TREATMENT HAVE RESONATED AMONG A GROWING NUMBER OF LOCAL BIDDERS!!!
