DHHS gave big contract to Wos acquaintance

DHHS Secretary Aldona Wos DHHS Secretary Aldona Wos


RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - A man who works for the husband of North Carolina Health and Human Services Secretary Aldona Wos landed a huge government contract to provide her with advice.

Wos's agency has refused for three weeks to provide The Associated Press with a copy of the consulting contract provided to Joe Hauck or say how much he is paid, information that is a public record under state law.

Hauck is the vice president of sales and marketing for New Breed Logistics, a High Point company for which Wos' husband is the chief executive. It is not clear what work Hauck has performed for DHHS.

The News & Observer of Raleigh reported Friday that Hauck has been paid $228,000 in the past eight months, making him among the agency's highest compensated individuals.
