Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.)

The Office of Personnel Management’s contract for credit monitoring services has come under scrutiny lately. OPM closed the bidding process after only 36 hours, which led several procurement experts to question whether the agency steered the contract toward Winvale. Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) has started looking into the contract, sending a letter to OPM Director Katherine Archuleta last week seeking answers about both the rationale for the contract award, as well as the performance of Winvale and its subcontractor CSID. Sen. Warner joined Tom Temin on the Federal Drive to explain what he wants to know and why he’s so upset.
