DHHS contracts, worker records sought by federal attorneys

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) – Federal prosecutors have subpoenaed information about personal services contracts made between the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and four contractors, as well as records about the former project head of a Medicaid billing system.

The subpoenas from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Raleigh were released by DHHS Friday afternoon.

The subpoenas requested the information be provided last month. A department spokeswoman said the agency is cooperating with the federal government.

One subpoena seeks records for contracts between DHHS and Les Merritt, Thomas Adams, Joe Hauck and the firm Alvarez & Marsal. The other seeks records about more than 30 employees, including Angeline Sligh, the former Medicaid information systems director.

The subpoenas also ask for the employment contract and financial disclosures required for former DHHS Secretary Aldona Wos.
