Ag report finds waste financial mismanagement of health it says is ‘exaggerated’
« There was no evidence whatsoever of financial mismanagement, » Kibby said in an interview Thursday. « The financial mismanagement was real, and it was documented. »
Kibby said he was disturbed at what he calls « exaggerated » claims by members of his team that the department’s health program was riddled with fraud, « outrageous » and « utterly incomprehensible. »
He cited reports in The New York Times and The Washington Post alleging that the department mismanaged $1 billion in federal funds and spent less than 2 percent of the money it received in the fiscal years that ended in June 2015 as well as a $2.5 billion contract to buy a $350 million building to replace a large warehouse.

Officials at the time said they had not done a full review of the report and had concluded the money was « generally not used efficiently. »
