AFSCME Council 31 received notice that CMS is contemplating Outsourcing the CMS/BCCS End User Computing unit. We are scheduled to meet with CMS and BCCS on 09/29/13 at 1:00 pm. This is becoming a problem, consolidate and then Outsource the units, exactly opposite of what they told us during all of consolidation meetings in 2005. The problem is BCCS has so understaffed this unit, the EUC employees are being setup to fail. Plus we all know there will be no savings by using a 3rd party to perform our work. We will update after the 09/29/13 meeting.
