Governor Tom Corbett has directed his Office of General Counsel to
oversee an integrity review of Denver-based Ciber, Inc.
This exceptional review of business and marketing practices was initiated after a
former Ciber official was charged as part of grand jury presentment alleging
criminal irregularities in the awarding of contracts with the Pennsylvania Turnpike
The governor has also directed a comprehensive review of the business practices of
all other vendors named in the Turnpike Commission investigation.
"Given the disturbing allegations raised by the turnpike investigation, we will
carefully review these vendors to be certain that they meet the highest standards
for ethical business operations," Corbett said. "It is imperative that vendors who
perform services for the commonwealth clearly establish the integrity of their
personnel and their procedures in order to demonstrate that any business
relationships are in the best interest of the taxpayers of Pennsylvania."
Additionally, PennDOT today announced that it will rebid an $8.6 million contract for
information technology (IT) recently awarded, but not fully executed with Ciber.
The $8.6 million Ciber contact was issued for IT project management services for
more than 100 ongoing PennDOT projects.
PennDOT expects a new contract to be awarded in approximately four months but
does not expect the delay to impact its IT systems.
