Morneau Shepell awarded $53m in federal contracts over seven years
The federal government awarded more than $53 million in contracts to human resources firm Morneau Shepell over the past seven years, according to a government response tabled in Parliament Monday evening.
Federal departments and agencies found 171 contracts — worth a total of $53,676,769.35, according to a count by iPolitics — when asked to provide all contracts with Morneau Shepell since January 2010.
The vast majority are claims for entire contracts, while others are charges under insurance contracts with Morneau Shepell. A handful of transactions — all with Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) — involved money being returned to the government because of contracts being amended or cancelled.
The largest contract was a $2,864,278.97 bill for the Canada Border Services Agency’s employee assistance program.
