Taxpayer Stimulus Funds Used By Vendor For Offshore Outsourcing
Thursday, August 19, 2010
Periodically, this blog covers outsourcing and offshore outsourcing because much of consumers' sensitive personal data is transmitted to and processed by companies in remote locations and/or other countries. On Monday, the NBC affiliate in Columbus Ohio reported the results of an investigation where the State of Ohio award a contract (funded by taxpayers stimulus money) to a company that outsourced the jobs to a firm outside the USA.
This is wrong is so many ways. Stimulus money is for jobs here, not overseas. And, companies need to be transparent in disclosing their outsourcing activities, especially in website terms. The televised news report:
I think it is right that companies should be transparent when disclosing in any outsourcing activities to keep it confidential. Thank you so much for sharing us this informative post! Good Luck and More Power!

Yes, there are plenty of advantages ** to companies** to outsource various functions, namely to lower costs. Several posts in this blog (see http://ivebeenmugged.typepad.com/my_weblog/outsourcing/ ) have cautioned consumers to ask what these outsource vendors do to protect the sensitive customer information they handle, and whether they report data breaches to their client company. To focus only on the advantages is misleading.
