The Board of Public Works rejected a Hogan administration request to approve three existing Health Department contracts on Wednesday, after two members of the panel said the agency failed to provide enough information about the procurements. The contracts, totaling nearly $13 million, were among 12 emergency procurements for which the state was seeking retroactive approval. The other nine were approved, including a $25 million deal with Digital Management, LLC to create a COVID-19 vaccination call center, and lab testing contracts with Mako Medical Laboratories and CIAN Diagnostics worth $41 million between them.
