He was appointed by Sebelius in 2004 to concurrently serve as Secretary of the Kansas Department of Administration, the agency that manages state facilities, accounting, information services, and employee programs. Goossen retired from the Kansas Health Institute as Vice President for Fiscal and Health Policy, which oversaw KHI’s research and analysis of state fiscal policy, health reform, and other health policy issues.
