I’m pleased to hear that the first managed competition results will save taxpayers over $1 Million. Congratulations to the City print shop employees for winning the bid by streamlining their operation and reducing their costs by 30%. My hope is that other departments will follow the print shop’s lead and aggressively rethink service delivery through the managed competition process.
It doesn’t matter who wins as long as it guarantees improved efficiency and savings to taxpayers. Moving forward, it is important that we hold winners accountable, whether it is city employees or private contractors, for the results promised in their bids.
