Without Explanation, City Procurement Office Seeks to Triple Armed Security Guard Contract

The Board of Estimates is being asked tomorrow to add millions of dollars to an armed guard contract that went into effect just seven months ago.

In so doing, the owner of a small Randallstown company – which won the contract by underpricing its 10 rivals – is in line to receive a $7.87 million revised contract, $5.5 million more than the original contract.

The recipient of this fresh money is C.I.E.R. Security & Protection Agency LLC, which is “not in good standing,” according to the Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation.
