Since last summer, after receiving a tip, Checks and Balances Project has been looking into questions about New York City’s $30.5M contract with software company Ivalua to custom-build an eProcurement platform for some 40 city government agencies.

Fast forward 16 months and the contract amount has risen to $47M while the city still doesn’t have a working eProcurement software system as Ivalua promised.

In a recent Gotham Gazette op-ed, Checks & Balances lays out the details of its investigation into this contract scandal and calls on NYC regulators to investigate this fleecing of NYC taxpayers. Check it out here.
