WASHINGTON—Today, House Committee on Oversight and Reform Ranking Member James Comer (R-Ky.) applauded the Department of Homeland Security Office of the Inspector General for launching an investigation into a massive, no-bid contract awarded to Endeavors, Inc.—a nonprofit linked to the Biden-Harris Transition Team.
“The Department of Homeland Security Office of the Inspector General is right to launch an investigation into the Biden Administration’s suspicious no-bid contract awarded to Endeavors, Inc. There are serious concerns about the award process, the nonprofit’s ability to meet the contract needs, and the link to the Biden-Harris Transition Team. The cost of President Biden’s border crisis already burdens American taxpayers and we cannot allow the Biden Administration to exploit it to reward political allies with lucrative taxpayer-funded contracts. This is government waste and abuse and must be addressed. I hope this investigation sends a strong message to the Biden Administration that taxpayer dollars cannot be misused to line the pockets of political friends.”
Earlier this month, Ranking Member Comer joined House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Jim Jordan and Congressman Tom McClintock in sending letters to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, the Department of Health and Human Services, and Endeavors, Inc. raising concerns about no-bid contracts awarded to the nonprofit. Additionally, Ranking Member Comer and House Homeland Security Committee Ranking Member John Katko, along with Republicans on the House Oversight and Reform and House Homeland Security Committees, wrote Secretary of Health and Human Services Xavier Becerra in April requesting a briefing about a $530 million no-bid contract awarded to Endeavors, Inc., which to date has not been provided.
