Taking aim at outsourcing



Crist and Sink said a newly-created seven-member Council on Efficient Government will initially conduct a top-to-bottom review of three big privatization deals involving Convergys Corp.'s People First, Accenture Corp.s MyFloridaMarketPlace and Project Aspire.

The review will include questions of waste, inefficiency and breaches of security of state employee personnel data. The two officials did not rule out the possibility of shifting some services back to government, in what would amount to an unraveling of a big part of Bush's changes.
