Fifth Texas health commission official out amid contracting woes

The shake-up over contract mismanagement at the Texas Health and Human Services Commission continued Friday with the resignation of another state official who oversees contracting.

Ron Pigott, the agency’s deputy executive commissioner for procurement and contracting services, is leaving as officials work to rebound from continued verbal shellackings and scrutiny by auditors, legislators and Gov. Greg Abbott in the past week. Pigott stepped into the role in 2015 and previously headed procurement at the Texas Comptroller’s Office.
