IHS told ProPublica last week that 247,000 of the masks delivered by Fuentes’ company may be unsuitable for medical use, and that an additional 130,400 were not the type specified in the procurement data. During testimony on Tuesday by the Department of Health and Human Services’ principal deputy inspector general, Christi Grimm, before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, Rep. Gerry Connolly of Virginia mentioned the ProPublica report and asked Grimm if her office would be looking into the contract and how it was awarded.
