Canada Border Services Agency misses deadline to hand over ArriveCan invoices, declines to identify subcontractors
Government Operations committee calls on Procurement Ombudsman to review ArriveCan contracting
The committee’s investigation followed reports by The Globe and Mail that the cost to build and maintain the app is on pace to reach $54-million this fiscal year. The CBSA has since said the original version of the app cost just $80,000 to build, but the price tag grew over time because of numerous updates.
80,000 to 54 MILLION?!?! For UPDATES?!?!
And now they can't even manage to turn over the invoices? Due to 'translation' issues? What language are they in? klingon? Ancient elvish? Do we need an enigma machine here or something? It's a frakkin invoice!
just another case of the kind of corruption we've seen under this gov't. Very obviously someone got rich doing nothing because they thought they wouldn't get caught and now the gov't agency is trying to protect themselves and hide the fact they allowed it to happen.
This shouldn't be a 'committee', this should be a police investigation.
