About the Program:

The private sector has been collecting data on cost savings/cost avoidance in their procurement divisions and using the results to establish best practices and benchmarking. While there are many similarities between public procurement agencies for contracting and sourcing techniques, attempts to find commonality and benchmarks for cost savings/cost avoidance have been somewhat alien to the public sector. However, as more and more emphasis is being placed upon public purchasing officials to demonstrate their public value and develop best practices that in some form mirror private enterprises, government purchasing has been called upon to document their performance in terms of savings. This recorded session will review terminology and methods for data collection and reporting and review aspects of an existing report. • The participants will diagnose the definitions of cost savings and cost avoidance for purposes of reporting on procurement value. • The participants will explore several avenues of calculating and collecting cost savings/cost avoidance data in a consistent and meaningful way. • The participants will analyze best practice procedures for documenting and validating actual savings and estimated potential savings. • The participants will review and discuss different reporting formats and avenues to share the cost savings and cost avoidance accomplishments.
