Thanks Robert for sharing this with all of us. 

I don't know what to say; I think this is inevitable given all the outsourcing 
that's going on from DBS. There's just too much money being handed all around 
(except maybe to clients), and unfortunately, many people in the pipeline get a 
direct percentage of the money their organization takes in (or an indirect 
percentage). Money handled like this tempts everyone, which includes a lot of 
unqualified people to come into the system (they're doing it for the money, not 
because it's their calling). 

If you don't think this is the ultimate source of the problem, just contrast 
this to the system where a state bureau chief receives a standardized salary, 
regardless of how much money his bureau handles. Think about why a group of 
people have hired their own lobbyist to see that they get as much money as 
possible. I think we'll never be able to clean up the system as long as it 
works like this; money is too difficult to manage, too much of a temptation. I 
think we need to go back to a system where state employees do this work, and 
they do it in a standardized way, for a standardized salary, across the state, 
and if you as a client have a problem, you have a long chain of command which 
you can work with to get satisfaction.

Hi all, 

Thought some of you might be interested in reading the comprehensive report 
from the IG's office on the recent management review on DBS. It is time to take 
action on this issue. This is the worse I have ever seen on the miss use of the 
tax payers dollars and in my opinion is embezzlement of funds through state 
contracts. I strongly encourage you to send copies to your local news paper to 
get the attention of the commissioner of education and the governor so it isn't 
swept under the rug. I am so up set I am still shaking after reading it. This 
is another classic example of the lack of concern for blind citizens of 

If you recall from the Town hall meeting at the FCB convention, Mrs. Hildreth 
said she felt the out come of the report would be positive, well it's time for 
us to get up off our asses and let her know isn't in no way positive and we 
aren't going to allow blind citizens to be treated this way. 

The information in this post is solely my opinion and in no way reflects the 
opinion of FCB.
