Board Council for Responsible Government Spending Phase I
This report is the product of the efforts and expertise of our Board level committee of industry experts. The members of five subcommittees worked over a period of four months to examine and identify private sector best practices in the areas of: Property Management and Space Utilization, Fleet Management, Procurement, Information Technology and Public Employee Benefits. The focus was on efficiency, not on cutting or eliminating programs. Our Board Council has developed 43 recommendations, which conservatively can save State government, and therefore taxpayers, approximately $300 million. We are currently working with state government to share our ideas, recommendations and expertise.
