Maine government has signed more than 2,200 contracts for special services since
Maine government has signed more than 2,200 contracts for special services since July 1, 1994, and in many cases outside contractors have been hired to handle specific tasks. Contracts for a review of state office-space leases, a consultant to secure more Medicaid funding and the management of the proposed Sears Island cargo port project are just a few examples of outsourcing questioned by state legislators. Some lawmakers examining the work of the state Productivity Realization Task Force are asking why managers for state agencies can't do some of the work being farmed out to private contractors. Contracts for services given to BC&D Services, Boulos Advisory Services and Maximus, Inc. of Virginia are being questioned. Details.
