Top health official resigns over contract concerns | www.statesman.com

The top lawyer for the state’s sprawling health agency has resigned amid questions raised by an American-Statesman investigation into his relationship with an Austin technology company to which he was steering $110 million in contracts.

Jack Stick, chief counsel for the Health and Human Services Commission, tendered his resignation to Kyle Janek, executive commissioner of the agency, said agency spokeswoman Stephanie Goodman.

Janek has canceled the state’s contract with 21CT, the data analytics firm to which Stick had directed business along with other officials, Goodman said. Stick’s resignation and the cancellation of the contract come a day after the Statesman asked several questions about Stick’s relationship with the company, which had been awarded a $20 million contract and a pending $90 million contract extension while appearing to skirt procurement laws.
