Far too often, vital services of state government are privatized by contracting them out to consultants. While these plans can be made to sound good as pitched by the sales representatives of the vendors, the combination of public money and private interests can be hazardous to the public interest unless carefully regulated. Each year the state wastes hundreds of millions of dollars on costly consultants when state employees can provide the same services at an equivalent or better quality for lower cost.
