Neil Mitchell chases answers over $4.1 million contract-tracing contract

Neil Mitchell is chasing answers after a screenshot emerged of a $4.1 million contract being offered by the Victorian Government to help with the state’s contact-tracing system.

The tender, which is no longer online, had a start date of August 29.

“Why the hell did the contract only sell a week ago?” the 3AW Mornings host said.

Neil Mitchell was skeptical about that response.
