NC leaders want 'cooling off' period for exiting state workers

Posted: Updated:
RALEIGH, N.C. -

North Carolina State Auditor Beth Wood wants a "cooling off" period for state government employees who leave to take a job with a vendor.

The statement from Wood came after a manager of the NC Tracks system left to work for CSC, the company contracted to develop the system.

Wood wants a period of six months between an individual leaving a state government position and starting a job with a vendor.

"This person who is over seeing this project, making sure it will successfully go live, leaves the state and now the person that he was supposed hold their feet to the fire now works for them," Wood said.

Other state leaders feel the same as Wood.

"We're seeing situations where people have literally signed a contract one day and gone to work with the individual with the contract the next day," said Rep. Ralph Hise.
