Discussion | We need your ideas about potential savings strategies for the U.S. government

Has your company developed methods that have resulted in alternative cost savings for customers when procuring your BMO services? 
The heart of strategic sourcing is to save money for federal agencies and, in turn, the U.S. taxpayer. We are in the process of developing our savings strategy for how to best accomplish this through the final BMO acquisition solution. And we need your help.
The government does not have a concrete set of approaches for calculating savings for its strategic sourcing programs. Each commodity area is different and has a unique set of criteria, which makes it difficult to develop a one-size-fits all equation.
We would like to know from BMO service providers possible ways which the government can save money other than through service price reductions. Through your previous private or federal contracts, has your company developed methods that have resulted in alternative cost savings for customers, such as increased administrative efficiencies or by avoiding costs through improved customer behavior? 
Just so you understand where we’re going with this…one basic example might be consolidating contractual requirements/services across multiple property assets owned by a single federal customer. This would result in less administrative work by contracting staff due to lower demand for contract maintenance. We are focusing more on contractual-based solutions rather than building performance best practices, etc.

<p>JShapiro,</p><p>The questions that will be posted here in Interact are more informal than those contained in a Request for Information. Therefore, there is no set due date. However, for this particular question, your response would be most valuable to us if we could have it by Monday, Nov 17 so that it can be taken under consideration for a possible savings strategy we might propose to the SSLC. Thank you for your interest!</p>
