Regrann from @freedom_faction - A company called #TributeContracting LLC, which is owned by fashionista Dr. Tiffany Brown received a $156 million contract from the #FederalEmergencyManagementAgency (#FEMA) to deliver 30 million meals to #PuertoRico in the aftermath of #HurricaneMaria, but she only delivered 50,000.
According to her website, Brown's company, a minority-owned government consulting firm, has had three FEMA Contracts worth millions of dollars.
In addition to her LLC and being an author, she also owns the following: • Tiffany Brown Designs- women’s clothing line
• Tiffany Brown Holdings Inc.- Consulting firm that has five divisions: entertainment, vending, radio, food, nonprofit management and book publishing
• Luxe Fuel- A beverage delivery software app
She obviously has no problem in taking in money and finding ways to make it.
However, she took on a contract worth millions in #taxpayerdollars and failed to deliver.
The New York Times has the story:
The mission for the Federal Emergency Management Agency was clear: Hurricane Maria had torn through Puerto Rico, and hungry people needed food. Thirty million meals needed to be delivered as soon as possible.
For this huge task, FEMA tapped Tiffany Brown, an #Atlanta entrepreneur with no experience in large-scale disaster relief and at least five canceled government contracts in her past. FEMA awarded her $156 million for the job, and Ms. Brown, who is the sole owner and employee of her company, Tribute Contracting LLC, set out to find some help.
Ms. Brown, who is adept at navigating the federal contracting system, hired a wedding caterer in Atlanta with a staff of 11 to freeze-dry wild mushrooms and rice, chicken and rice, and vegetable soup. She found a nonprofit in #Texas that had shipped food aid overseas and domestically, including to a #Houston food bank after #HurricaneHarvey.
By the time 18.5 million meals were due, Tribute had delivered only 50,000. And FEMA inspectors discovered a problem: The food had been packaged separately from the pouches used to heat them. FEMA’s solicitation required “self-heating meals.” More in comments | follow @the_truth_hunters - #regrann
