Privatization Conference Call

On Thursday, December 13th at 1pm EST the Progressive States will be holding a conference call on bringing transparency to privatization by state governments.

The call will focus on findings from a new report (discussed in this Dispatch) being released by Progressive States that highlights that, despite many high-profile failures of big privatization projects by state governments, few governments have established effective accountability standards and almost none even effectively measure what percentage of their budgets go to private contracts.  

The call will encourage best practices on collecting better data on privatization by state governments and making more information available on the web. Good Jobs First, which recently released a study ranking states on the degree of online transparency in government contracting, will speak on the call, as well as legislators from Colorado and Texas.
