Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Dailymail.co.uk: “Healthcare firm controlled by Lord Ashcroft given Covid testing role”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

A company controlled by Tory party donor and long-time tax exile Lord Ashcroft has been handed a £350 million Government coronavirus testing contract.

The deal, signed on December 20, requires his company, Medacs Healthcare, to provide staff for both lab and mobile testing over the next two years. Details were published on a government website on Tuesday. 

The contract is described as a 'call-off from a framework agreement', meaning it was awarded without an open competitive tender process.

Lord Ashcroft's involvement will fuel the controversy over the so-called 'chumocracy' which has seen friends of MPs, peers and ministers awarded pandemic deals which run into billions.
