Lawmakers urge HHSC to move on contracting reforms, promise new action on agency contracts in 86th

Chair Nelson says contracting problems don’t appear to have anything to do with the size of the agency or where the division is on an organizational chart, instead it’s a failure to elevate the problems “to a top level at which the legislature believes it should be”

Lawmakers are urging the Health and Human Service Commission to aggressively move forward on contracting changes and not wait on what is expected to be a third round of legislation intended to address contracting problems at multiple state agencies.
