    PM ally Scott Briggs donates $133,000 to Libs, bids for major contract

    The company leading a consortium bidding for a lucrative $1 billion visa processing contract and headed by a close associate of Prime Minister Scott Morrison, donated more than $130,000 to the Liberal Party in the lead-up to the last federal election.

    Political donation records released by the Australian Electoral Commission show that Pacific Blue Capital, led by former New South Wales Liberal Party deputy state director Scott Briggs, has contributed $133,000 to the Liberal Party since late 2017, including 14 donations worth $90,000 between November 2018 and February last year.

    The tender, which is part of a broader Department of Home Affairs initiative to upgrade and simplify the visa IT system, has become mired in controversy amid concerns that outsourcing visa processing will put the security of sensitive personal and national data at risk and potentially cost hundreds of jobs.

    Should we run a sweepstake to see if he gets the contract or not?
