Sources: Second round of subpoenas issued in Orange County FBI probe

GOSHEN The FBI has reportedly delivered a second wave of subpoenas as it continues its investigation into Orange County’s information technology contract awards, according to sources.

Both current and past Orange County government officials have received those summonses.

The government agency is looking into the procedures and guidelines used when StarCIO was given contracts for IT consulting services.

The company was given a contract worth $65,000 for short-term part-time employment at first; by the end of 2023, the deal was reportedly worth almost $800,000.

Initially, four Democratic lawmakers from Orange County took their concerns to State Senator James Skoufis, a fellow Democrat and the chairman of the Senate Investigations Committee. Skoufis detailed his allegations of corruption in the higher echelons of the county government.

According to county officials, there was no misconduct.

Skoufis got the FBI involved by asking them to look into the dispute together with the State Attorney General’s Office.

Regarding whether that agency is looking into the issues as well, the attorney general has been contacted twice but has not answered.

According to the sources, the FBI might expand its scope beyond the information technology probe and examine procurement and contracts across the whole Orange County government.
