Evidence of corruption in the Bay Area UASI office headed by San Francisco’s Laura Phillips continues to mount. Yesterday reported that the Santa Clara County Exec filed a formal request for a Federal investigation.  Details are available at 11/01/2010 San Francisco – In the first public filing of its kind under the $6.9 billion broadband stimulus program of the Obama Administration, the County Executive of Santa Clara County, California today filed an official request for a federal investigation of the most controversial award under the program, the $ 50 million BayWEB public safety wireless project.

The filing, issued by County Executive Dr. Jeffrey Smith, was issued today to the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) of the U.S. Department of Commerce. As we reported in April, Inspector General Todd J. Zinser has publicly questioned if the agency that issued broadband stimulus grants within Commerce, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), has correctly deployed sufficient staff and other resources to properly screen awards under the program.
