DHHS No-Bid Contract Questioned

Aldona Wos, Secretary of North Carolina Department Health and Human Services


In hearings yesterday, state lawmakers questioned the Department of Health and Human Services' hiring of an outside contracting firm without a bid process.

The agency claims the emergency situation with the state’s Medicaid system justified the no-bid $6.8 million contract with Alvarez and Marsal, a  global turnaround management firm. Host Frank Stasio talks with WRAL’s Capitol bureau chief Laura Leslie about the contract and the current state of the Medicaid system.
