New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer has rejected a $30 million information technology contract that was awarded during the administration of former mayor Michael Bloomberg.

Stringer said Thursday that his office rejected the contract with Allentown, Pa.-based Computer Aid Inc.

Stringer said that under the contract, the city Department of Information Technology and Telecommunication would have outsourced the selection and oversight of all information technology contracts to Computer Aid.

The comptroller’s office said the contract limits the city’s direct role in the administration, management and oversight of the contracting process.

The rejection is part of a review of contracts awarded under the Bloomberg administration by Stringer’s office.

Officials at Computer Aid Inc. did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
