From Obama’s Blueprint for Change (PDF), in the Ethics section:
End Abuse of No-Bid Contracts: Barack Obama will end abuse of no-bid contracts by requiring that nearly
all contract orders over $25,000 be competitively awarded.
Despite President Obama’s long history of criticizing the Bush administration for “sweetheart deals” with favored contractors, the Obama administration this month awarded a $25 million federal contract for work in Afghanistan to a company owned by a Democratic campaign contributor without entertaining competitive bids, Fox News has learned.
Change you can believe in, if you lower your expectations by a factor of 1000.
