Robert Bate writes about his experiences when federal spending practices come to light in today's Washington Post. Bate recalls his experiences with USAID on a malaria-eradication program that had seen 93% -- almost 19 out of every 20 dollars in the program -- dissipate in administrative and consultinf fees. As I posted today at the Heritage Foundation Policy Blog, this not only demonstrates the need for the kind of easily-accessible website that can provide the kind of oversight that cured USAID of pork overload, but it also shows why federal contracts have to be included in the data. Be sure to read the entire post and Bate's excellent article.Sphere It View blog reactions
