Some researchers matched the Recovery.gov list of contractors to the membership list of the Professional Services Council, the trade association for the federal outsourcing industry, to see if the Obama administration continues to promote past tendencies toward privatization. While they didn't find Bush-preferred private contractors Kellogg, Brown, & Root (of Halliburton infamy) or Blackwater (now renamed Xe Services), they did find CACI along with many others. Their latest tally is 470 privatizing contracts worth about $3.5 billion.
