Illinois Comptroller Susan Mendoza has published a column in the State Journal-Register about concerns she has over proposed changes to the Department of Healthcare and Family Services's Medicaid Managed Care Organization (MCO) system. Mendoza writes: "With a cost of between $35 billion and $40 billion over four years, it is the largest procurement in state history. As Illinois’ chief fiscal and accountability officer, my concerns start with three issues: Timing, transparency and accountability." Mendoza notes that Illinois hasn't had a budget in 23 months, which creates problems for planning a massive procurement like this.
