"Cost of Welfare Compliance Put at $1.6 Million" (June 5) mentioned a contract awarded by L.A. County in the late 1980s to privatize a portion of its welfare services. Your article states the contract with Maximus was "widely held to be a failure." Nothing could be further from the truth. During our five years of operation, Maximus faithfully served the county and its welfare population. In a 1993 letter, Eddy S. Tanaka, previous director of the Department of Public Social Services, expressed his "sincere appreciation for the excellent job Maximus has done in providing case management for the Greater Avenues for Independence (GAIN)

As Los Angeles County officials pleaded for budget help in Sacramento, the first of many expected job actions by county workers threatened with layoffs occurred Tuesday at welfare offices throughout Los Angeles. Employees in at least six welfare offices called in sick or walked off their jobs in protest of the county's efforts to cut as many as 18,255 jobs and slash services in an effort to resolve an unprecedented budget deficit of $1.2 billion.

The Rose Institute study (June 3) alleging that the cost to deliver one dollar of welfare benefits increased from 19 cents in 1977-78 to 34 cents in 1995-96 is fatally flawed and a grave disservice at a time when public debate is vitally needed to reform our welfare system. The authors have taken the most simplistic approach possible by comparing county budget documents for 1977-78 to those for 1995-96 and in doing so have contorted the findings. For example, in the intervening 18 years, the county has changed its accounting practices.
