Eagle columnist Mark McCormick put a spotlight this month on what’s becoming a growing problem: the lack of transparency when private companies do government work. McCormick focused on Durham Bus Services, which provides bus transportation for the Wichita school district. He related the difficulty he and some parents have had getting information about bus drivers. Unlike the school district, Durham is a private company, and it has refused to answer basic questions about its bus drivers.
As governmental units, including the U.S. military, outsource more and more work to private contractors, the public may save some money, but it can also lose accountability.
