Travis DA to open criminal probe of $110M contract award – Houston Chronicle

AUSTIN – The Travis County District Attorney’s office and the Texas State Auditor will investigate how a company here won $110 million in state contracts without any competition, officials announced Thursday as the deals drew increasing condemnation and calls for reform.

Gregg Cox, director of the district attorney’s Public Integrity Unit, said he expects to open a criminal inquiry following two formal complaints into the now-canceled Medicaid fraud detection contracts given to Austin technology firm 21CT by Jack Stick, who last week resigned as general counsel at the state Health and Human Services Commission amid allegations of favoritism.
