A former Access Health CT employee was fined $600 by the State Ethics Office for trying to solicit additional money from a state contractor for information he was supposed to share.

Eldon G. Porter was in charge of creating the “savings calculator” for the Access Health CT website. As such he was supposed to share the “proprietary source code” for the calculator with a state contractor in charge of marketing the health insurance exchange.

“While Porter initially shared information and data with the state contractor, in March 2013 Porter demanded that the state contractor provide personal financial compensation directly to him in order for the state contractor to receive further information and data. The state contractor did not pay Porter,” the State Ethics Office stated in a press release about the stipulated agreement.

Porter’s solicitation of compensation for information and data he obtained through his state employment represented an attempt to use his position for personal financial gain.

The Cincinnati, Ohio man is no longer employed by the state because of a separate but related personnel issue.
