Outsourcing Review Panel
Charlie Crist is in full damage control mode with reviewing Florida's use of outsourcing. I say it is about time.
Alex Sink has appointed a seven member panel.
Sink appointed Steven Evans, 59, of Tallahassee, CEO of Florida TaxWatch and a retired IBM executive. Crist chose Timothy Yandell, 56, of Melbourne Beach, owner of inetUSA, and Akhil Agrawal, 39, of Miami Beach, president of American Medical Depot.
Campaign finance records show only Agrawal donated to either of their 2006 campaigns. He gave Crist $500 in 2005. The seven-member Council on Efficient Government will examine the performance of the outsourcing of most personnel, purchasing and accounting functions in three ventures by the Bush administration.
