StateScoop: Kansas Gov. Laura Kelly terminated two IT contracts worth $112 million on Thursday that she said violated the state’s fair procurement rules.
The contracts, with a subsidiary of the Montreal-based CGI Technologies, were issued in 2017 and 2018 by the administration of then-Gov. Sam Brownback. The 10-year contracts were to upgrade the state’s tax and debt-collection systems, but project delays last year combined with controversial layoffs tied to the agreements brought heightened attention to the state’s failure to use its usual competitive procurement process.
