Will FSSA Finally Admit Error Of Roob's Way?
Perhaps Indiana's Family & Social Services Agency is on the brink of acknowledging the colossal mistake its former head, Mitch Roob, made in forcing through a privatization deal for the state's welfare program that involved the participation of his former employer, ACS. "A top Indiana official says the state's privately run welfare project has so many problems that Indiana could begin taking steps to cancel its $1.16 billion contract this fall," the AP reports. The private vendors are being given until the end of September to prepare a "corrective action plan" or face the cancellation of the 10-year contract.
