Big Government responds to Frank Beckmann

Yesterday, I was on WJR with Frank Beckmann exposing massive mismanagement within the Department of Information Technology and the Office of Management and Budget. Apparently, I touched a nerve. The governor sent Lisa Webb Sharpe, director of the OMB to talk to Frank and give a rebuttal. The interview is on the link below.

Just to review one of the most glaring examples of government mismanagement, the Dept. of Information Technology (DIT) had a 40 month contract with Policy Studies, Inc. worth $5.5 million for project management services for the Child Support Enforcement system. By the end of the 40 months actual expenditures for these services was $200 million! The oversight alone amounted to $161,000 per DAY, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Wow, that's some consultant!
