PERSPECTIVES [editor’s note]
When ‘Not as Bad’
is Good News
By Larry Anderson
hether an occurrence is good news or bad news often depends
on the context. Case in point: The National League of Cities’
latest City Fiscal Conditions survey, which shows that 43 percent of
city finance officers are less able to meet city needs than last year.
That may sound like bad news to some, but considered in
context, it’s good news. If you consider that last year the troubling
number was 57 percent and the years before it was 87 (2010) and
88 percent (2009), the latest figure doesn’t seem so bad.
Positive spin is typical of the economic news we are hearing lately.
The so-called “new normal” comes with it lower overall expectations
that put much of our economic news in a positive light. The
unemployment rate is still high, but not as high. Economic growth is
painfully slow, but slow growth is better than stagnation or decline.
Positive spin helps to feed the perpetual hunger for good news among
a weary populace, but some things defy a rosy outlook. The National
League of Cities survey highlights a variety of concerns plaguing the fiscal
health of cities, from health care and pension costs, to infrastructure
costs and public safety demands. Respondents to the NLC survey also
noted an increase in costs, declining local tax bases, less federal aid, and
a slow local economy in general. Property tax revenues are projected to
fall for the third year in a row; income taxes are dropping; while sales tax
revenues provide a bright spot by continuing to rise by 2.4 percent in 2012.
So how are local governments dealing with the challenges?
According to NLC, 43 percent have raised fee levels, 48 percent
have shrunk the size of their work force, 21 percent have decreased
human services spending, and 25 percent have reduced spending
for other services such as parks, recreation and libraries.
It’s a sure bet, then, that challenging economic conditions will provide
the context for how government procurement professionals do their
jobs in 2013 and in the foreseeable future. The news next year might
be “not as bad,” but the challenges will remain. With challenges come
opportunity for procurement professionals to highlight their contribution
to maximizing the benefits of even scarce available resources.
Many procurement departments are working with less staff. Effective
government operation, especially as it relates to how taxpayer resources
are spent on goods and services, rests on fewer shoulders. Still, the
impact of government procurement is huge, given that every penny saved
in a contract is a penny that will not have to be cut somewhere else.
Increasingly, the effectiveness of government depends on the
experience, skills and hard work of procurement professionals,
whose strategic role in achieving the mission of local and state
governments is greater than ever. For those making a career in
government procurement, that’s good news in any context.

PROCUREMENT PONDERABLE
The goal of Government Procurement is to stimulate thought
and discussion on significant issues in the profession, to foster
collaboration and community, and to encourage creative solutions
to common challenges. In that spirit, this issue of Government
Procurement presents a hypothetical scenario describing a challenge that
procurement professionals might face in the course of their careers.
The following scenario was written by a group of graduate students in the
course PADM 731 “Public Sector Procurement Law and Ethics” taught by
Dr. Stephen B. Gordon, FNIGP, CPPO during the Fall 2012 Semester at Old
Dominion University (ODU). Members of this student group included: Andrea
Fischer, Kerry McCrickard, Sandra Roberts, Jennifer Donohue, Whitney
Vaughn and Kevin Ramey. Mr. Ramey, who completed the requirements for
the MPA degree in 2011, is fulfilling the course requirements to earn ODU’s
Graduate Certificate in Public Procurement and Contract Management.
If you feel moved to respond to this Procurement Ponderable
scenario – and we hope that you do – we’ll publish your
comments in an upcoming issue of Government Procurement.
You are the chief procurement officer for a medium-sized local
government in a highly populated region of a southern, coastal
state. The City Manager, who only started work for your entity
three months ago, directs you to execute a sole-source, long-term
contract for vehicle emissions testing with a firm he has used many
times in the past when working as the senior administrator for other
entities. You have been on the job for two weeks. You have more
than ten years of progressively responsible experience in public
procurement level, but this is your first job at the director level.
The City Manager tells you that this firm is far and away the
best firm the city could select to administer a vehicle emissions
testing program. You serve at the pleasure of the City Manager.
Through conversations with your peers in other, nearby local
governments, and through research you do on your own, you
learn that many firms are capable of performing this service for
your entity efficiently, economically, and well; you also learn
that the firm “suggested” by the City Manager has a less than
stellar record of performance, going back several years.

HOW FEDERAL BUDGET
WOES IMPACT STATE AND
LOCAL GOVERNMENTS
ViaV_dVcVa`ce
By Brent Maas
Sj^`cVeYR_YR]W
ith the Eurozone on its way down the austerity path and the
European Central Bank (ECB) estimating two consecutive
years of GDP contraction, all eyes were on the United States as it
approached the Dec. 31, 2012, deadline to avert the automatic tax
increases and spending cuts that would jump-start a 10-year plan
to reduce its national deficit by $1.5 trillion. Whether or not an
alternative to the deficit reduction plan is negotiated, state and local
government budgets will be affected directly and indirectly.
The Pew Center on the States’ November 2012 report, The Impact of
the Fiscal Cliff on the States, points out that federal and state finances
are closely linked. “When certain expiring tax provisions within
the fiscal cliff are analyzed independently, they could increase state
revenues,” according to the Pew report, which lists these examples:
> For at least 25 states and the District of Columbia, lower federal
deductions would mean higher income taxed at the state level.
> At least 30 states and the District of Columbia would
see revenue increases because they have tax credits
based on federal credits that would be reduced
> Thirty-three states would collect more revenue
as a result of changes in the estate tax.
However, for the six states that currently allow deduction of federal
taxes, higher federal tax rates would translate into reduced state revenues.
Federal spending cuts in grant dollars (about 18 percent), procurement,
salaries, wages and defense stand to impact some states more than others.
Federal grants account for 5 to 10 percent of state
revenues (6.6 percent is the average).
Federal non-defense spending on
procurement, salaries and wages,
when compared to state gross
domestic product (GDP), is almost 20
percent of the DC-Maryland-Virginia
GDP. The next top 4 states impacted
by non-defense spending are Hawaii
(16 percent), Alaska (13 percent),
New Mexico (13 percent) and
Kentucky (10 percent). The national
average is 5.3 percent of GDP.
Federal defense spending on
procurement, salaries and wages is
nearly 15 percent of Hawaii’s GDP,
and a major factor in other states,
too, including Alaska (11 percent),
DC-Maryland-Virginia (10 percent),
Kentucky (8 percent) and Alabama (7

percent). The national average is 3.5 percent of GDP.
The above highlights the direct impact of the various
tax elements associated with the fiscal cliff. The broader
implications of indirect effects are less clear and
thereby provide the greater cause for uncertainty and
concern. The Pew report observes that if all of the tax
increases and spending cuts are allowed to take place,
the impact on individuals and the economy could
“significantly overwhelm any of the direct impacts.”
Where does that leave us? Barring the fiscal cliff,
economists predicted an economic growth rate for
2013 of 3 to 3.5 percent. As it stood at year-end,
growth would be curtailed to a net of about 2 percent,
prolonging an already slow period of recovery. The
trade-off to cuts and higher taxes today is a future of
even greater federal deficits and debt servicing as a
percentage of annual spending. At the end of 2012,
the U.S. federal debt was $16.3 trillion, 102 percent of
annual GDP, and a level not seen since World War II.
Without correction, the U.S. is on course to compound
its deficits at the rate of 4 to 6 percent per year.
While philosophical debate continues behind the
scenes as to a meaningfully relevant level of debt,
what the public, financial community and global
community expect at this time is an indication
of greater fiscal stability into the future. Well, as
Yogi Berra put it, “It ain’t over ‘til it’s over.”

EXPANDING DIVERSITY IN PUBLIC
SECTOR PROCUREMENT
By Kelly J. Okken
hat do you think of when someone mentions
diversity? Most people would say race,
gender, religion and age. Procurement professionals,
especially, are increasingly urged and sometimes
mandated to evaluate and increase diversity.
Recently I had the pleasure of listening to a speech
by Dr. Steve L. Robbins entitled “Homie Sapiens.” I
have also read his book entitled What If? Short Stories
to Spark Diversity Dialogue. In the speech and book,
Dr. Robbins provides a very different look at diversity.
He shows how diversity is not just about race, religion,
age or gender, but also about different perspectives
and experiences. Dr. Robbins explains how our
upbringing influences the way we think and react to
our surroundings and to others. The premise goes
beyond the proverbial “it’s your parents’ fault” and
includes influences that could have taken place during
primary school, while hearing adults talking or through
other experiences throughout our childhood years.
Let’s look at a scenario: You are interviewing
auditing firms. You are part of the interview
panel. You look out your office door and see two
auditing firm representatives waiting in the lobby
area. At first glance, this is what you see:
Representative #1: A muscular man with arms
covered in tattoos, long hair, dressed in a leather
jacket, leather boots and carrying a helmet.
Representative #2: A petite woman dressed in a tailored
business suit, well groomed, carrying a briefcase.
What would be your immediate reaction to what
you just saw? Where does that reaction come from?
Everyone’s reaction may be a little different, but I’m
guessing that many of us think that Representative
#2 would be the better candidate. But what you don’t
know about the situation is that Representative #1
has the degree, meets all the qualifications, and
comes with numerous glowing references from
several procurement professionals that you know
and respect. Representative #2 has the degree and
the qualifications, but she has not disclosed that she
has been fired from her last two auditing positions
and is currently being accused of embezzlement.
Something in life, maybe our early experiences,
has engrained in us a process to evaluate and draw
conclusions of others. Really, when you think about it,
these thoughts are related to diversity. Upon meeting
W
10 | DECEMBER/JANUARY 2013
someone, we are already thinking about how that
particular person is different from our expectations
or from our own standards of normal. It is very
hard, and sometimes almost impossible, to keep
these ingrained thoughts from occurring. Therefore,
diversity can affect our choices and decisions even
at times when we are unaware it is happening.
As procurement professionals, we sometimes
evaluate diversity in our procurement processes,
but are the evaluations always correct? I think our
immediate evaluation of what we read in proposals
is not always the correct one. When we have the
opportunity to talk with, interview or negotiate with
a potential contractor, our evaluation often changes.
What we thought to be reality within the proposal
is not always the true reality. The final evaluation
can sometimes be better and sometimes it can
be worse, but it will always be more educated.
As you can see in the scenario above, we don’t
always have all the information. We tend to jump to
conclusions in our first evaluation without having
all the information. Perhaps now you can see, as Dr.
Robbins showed me, how different perspectives and
experiences are also pieces of the diversity puzzle. The
diversity puzzle contains not only gender, age, religion,
and race, but is also made up of other pieces such as
the way one dresses, the language one uses, or their
piercings and tattoos, or lack thereof … and the list
goes on. There are so many things that make up who we
are and what we convey to others about who we are.
Clearly, we try to put others in our normal box
when evaluating proposals, but maybe we should be
expanding our box or even breaking down the walls
of our box. By doing so, our environment becomes
more adaptive to others so that we can become
more open to change, and embrace diversity. I am
continually working hard to break down the walls
of what I consider normal and to do my part to
embrace diversity and all of the wonderful new ideas,
processes, and contractors that diversity can bring.

LESSONS TO LEARN IN OPTIONS
AND COMPETITION
By Richard Pennington
“
The issue before this Court is whether the prices
for the … options for 2010 and 2011 could be
privately renegotiated by the parties or whether such a
renegotiation required public, competitive bidding.”
This quote from a Pennsylvania court opinion
last year cuts to the heart of a fundamental tool
used in government contracts. We all use options.
Indeed, many jurisdictions have limitations
on multi-year contracts that require the use of
options. Typically, governments assess price
reasonableness of options before exercising
them. But can price terms be renegotiated?
For federal procurement practitioners, the
balancing of the need for contract modifications
against competition policies is a recurring issue.
But in my experience a challenge against option
exercises on a competition grounds was unusual.
This article looks at the Pennsylvania case
and some lessons that can be derived from
it. The article also introduces some federal
standards for evaluating modifications and
explains why federal practice may be relevant.
PENNSYLVANIA’S OPTION ANALYSIS
The Pennsylvania case arose out of a waste services
contract. [Hanisco v. Township of Warminster, 41
A.3d 116 (Pa. Cmwlth. 2012)] The contract had
been awarded effective Jan. 1, 2005. The contract
had a five-year term with options for two one-year
extensions. The options were priced using a unit
price (based on the number of households).
In the fall of 2009, before the expiration of the
contract, a public hearing before the supervisors
was held and the waste services contract discussed.
The supervisors noted that neighboring towns were
paying less than the option price for similar trash and
recycling services. At the meeting, it was suggested that
advertising for a new waste hauling contract should
be postponed until a meeting with the incumbent
contractor scheduled the following day. The supervisors
authorized advertising for new bids if the meeting did
not result in an acceptable reduction in the option price.
At the meeting, the contractor agreed to freeze
the rates near current-year prices. The township
and contractor executed an amendment that left
the option-year prices the same in the contract but
12 | DECEMBER/JANUARY 2013
established a “rebate” that would reflect the agreed
reduction. The supervisors voted to approve the
amendment that exercised both of the option years in
exchange for the rebate. In all, the modified contract
options achieved a 10 percent reduction in price.
Hanisco, the plaintiff, lived in the township
and filed a complaint claiming that the township
should be enjoined from exercising the options and
required to engage in competitive bidding for a new
waste services contract. The trial court denied the
request for injunctive relief, and Hanisco appealed.
The township argued that the amendment was
a supplement to the existing contract, not a new
contract. The township maintained that once a public
contract has been lawfully awarded in accordance with
competitive bidding, a lower price may be negotiated.
The appellate court held against the township, however,
concluding that “the decision not to advertise its waste
services contract for competitive bidding has prevented
the parties from knowing whether greater savings
could have been achieved had the contract been rebid.”
One judge wrote a lengthy dissenting opinion. The
dissenting judge emphasized that the scope of work
and frequency of waste collection services stayed the
same: only the price was reduced. The dissent reviewed
other Pennsylvania precedent as well as precedent
in other states and applied a different legal standard
than the majority opinion. The dissent reasoned that
the modifications were not new undertakings and not
“material” because they were not of such a magnitude
that they undermined the goals of competitive bidding.
FEDERAL STANDARDS ON “SCOPE” ISSUES
What is “materiality” in the context of a modification?
Federal bid protest decisions provide guidance
about when “scope” has been materially changed
by an amendment. The Hanisco dissent applied
reasoning closer to the federal analysis.
Some state courts – Colorado and Arizona are
examples – will consider federal precedent in
matters peculiar to public procurement where there
is little state judicial precedent. Sometimes contract
law principles arising out of private commerce
provide little guidance. For example, whether the
formalities of an option exercise are adequate to
create a binding obligation can be resolved using

normal contract formation principles. Federal
precedent would not be particularly helpful. On
the other hand, the application of competition
policies to contract modifications is unique to public
procurement, and courts might be willing to consider
the way that federal courts analyze the issue.
The federal standard for assessing the materiality of
modifications looks at the expectations of competitors.
The General Accountability Office, the federal
agency that decides the lion’s share of federal bid
protests, considers whether the modification would
have materially changed the field of competition.
Similarly, the United States Court of Federal Claims
(the court having jurisdiction over federal bid
protests) has described the test this way: “If the court
concludes as a matter of law that the modification was
contemplated in the original procurement and the
type of work, quantity, performance period, and costs
have not substantially changed,” the requirements
for competition are not implicated. [Ceradyne
v. United States, 103 Fed.Cl. 1 (2012)] Note the
importance placed on original solicitation language.
DRAWING LESSONS FROM HANISCO
What lessons that can be learned from Hanisco? Case
law in the various states will differ of course. And some
courts are more likely than others to consider judicial
precedent outside the state. You need to view this issue
in the context of your state laws and local ordinances/
policies, meaning your lawyers should be involved.
When faced with case law like that in Pennsylvania,
attorneys look for facts that meaningfully distinguish
their situations, that is, reasons that a court should
not apply the holding in the case. Here are some
facts that might be a basis for distinguishing Hanisco
(even in Pennsylvania) and point the way to best
practices in states that follow this line of analysis.
> Avoid structural changes to contract pricing
mechanisms. The plaintiff argued that negotiation
of a “rebate” and the private negotiations
between the contractor and township created
a new contract. It is unclear from the opinion
why this amendment structure was used. Along
with the unusual, contemporaneous exercise
of both one-year options, the creation of a
rebate mechanism may have made this contract
modification appear more like an entirely new
contract. Avoid fundamental revisions to the

payment structure in the original contract.
> Include price adjustment provisions in the
solicitation and contract. The court noted that
the “renegotiation of price was not contemplated
by the original contract.” Consider using
economic price adjustment or renegotiation
provisions in solicitations. In the absence of
a relevant economic price adjustment index,
include a solicitation provision that permits
the agency to request renegotiation where
market information suggests availability of
reduced pricing. Modification of option prices
by amendment then more clearly become
contract administration actions, matters
not typically addressed in bid protests.
> Analyze the document option price. One
good practice is that required by the Federal
Acquisition Regulations: a market analysis
prior to option exercise. In Hanisco, other
townships had unit prices 33 percent lower than
the original option prices. However, the dissent
pointed out that the prices may not have been
an “apples to apples” comparison because other
townships had different frequency and range

of pickup services. If there are circumstances
that account for differences between option
prices and more favorable costs derived from
other market information, explain them in a
memorandum placed in the procurement file.
FINAL THOUGHTS
It is important to have the ability to fashion
contract administration tools like options that
adapt the contract to changing markets and
still promote competition policies. Sensitivity
must be shown, however, to how competition
policies and efficient contract administration
can sometimes collide. Providing for these
mechanisms up-front in the solicitation improves
the chances of a court’s approving of their use.

IN DEPTH [outsourcing]
Examining the role of the
Chief Procurement Officer
in the decision and process
Outsourcing
in the Public Sector
utsourcing in the public sector
means “contracting out” functions
that historically have been provided
by public employees. The belief that
there are functions best performed
by the private sector is not new, and
moving these functions from the public to the private sector
requires a fair and open process in the public’s best interest.
NIGP: The Institute for Public Procurement recognizes that
the outsourcing of particular governmental functions can
be a fiscally sound tool of responsible public administration.
However, identifying and assessing the elements of
public performance most appropriate for outsourcing
-- and ensuring a successfully executed outsourcing
decision – is a substantial challenge for everyone.
Public procurement offers a uniquely qualified and
professional resource for government decision-makers
considering outsourcing alternatives. The Chief Procurement
Officer (CPO), Procurement Director or Purchasing Manager
serves a strategic role in a public entity’s decision to outsource.
The CPO is central to a fair, transparent and effective
outsourcing process. While the decision is ultimately reserved
for an elected body or senior executive, the CPO is prepared
to provide informed insight on market structure, cost, risk,
competitive methods and contract form as these factors impact
the quality and cost of services. The CPO is uniquely positioned
to help design and manage a process to achieve a successful
public outsourcing effort. It is therefore important to engage
the CPO early as a strategic partner to assess and to administer
any ensuing selection and contract formation process.
O
16 | DECEMBER/JANUARY 2013
While examples of outsourcing exist from more than
a century ago, outsourcing gained momentum in the
United States and Great Britain in the early 1980s. Both
governments established criteria for contracting out a process
or function. OMB Circular A-76 is the current guide used
for outsourcing at the federal level in the United States.
Many states and local jurisdictions have adopted similar
guidance. OMB Circular A-76 provides insight on how to
outsource while describing the characteristics of “inherently
governmental activities” versus “commercial activities.” It
does not, however, offer a definitive list of which functions
are “inherently governmental” (and, therefore, should not
be outsourced) and which are potentially “commercial.”
Two questions, each with their own considerations
and processes, confront a governmental entity: (1)
Whether to outsource; and if so, (2) How to do it.
WHETHER TO OUTSOURCE
OMB Circular A-76 defines “inherently governmental
activity as “an activity so intimately related to the public
interest as to mandate performance by government
personnel.” These activities require the exercise of
substantial discretion in applying government authority
or in making decisions for the government. Inherently
governmental activities normally fall into two categories:
the exercise of sovereign government authority or the
establishment of procedures and processes related to the
oversight of monetary transactions or entitlements.
An inherently governmental activity involves:
> Binding the United States to take or not to take
some action by contract, policy, regulation,
authorization, order or otherwise;
> Determining, protecting and advancing economic,
political, territorial property, or other interests by
military or diplomatic action, civil or criminal judicial
proceedings, contract management or otherwise;
> Significantly affecting the life, liberty or
property of private persons; or
> Exerting ultimate control over the acquisition, use
or disposition of United States property (real or
personal; tangible or intangible), including establishing
policies or procedures for the collection, control or
disbursement of appropriate and other federal funds.
KEY CONSIDERATIONS IN OUTSOURCING
Although examples of outsourcing are present in all facets of
government, the threshold decision, whether to outsource a
particular function, is a difficult one requiring a thorough,
thoughtful assessment. In his book, Outsourcing State and
Local Government Service (1988), John O’Looney describes
the decision to outsource governmental service as similar to a
corporation choosing to divest itself of peripheral businesses
to better focus on core competency. O’Looney adds that,
“while the comparison is apt in many respects, the decision
to outsource a government service is typically more complex
than is the case in the private sector. Political and cultural
considerations, ideology and concern for values other than
the bottom line will, for good or ill, affect the decision making
in the public sector differently than in the private sector.”
A key consideration in the decision to outsource is an
organization’s sensitivity to risk. According to O’Looney,
a strategic manager must consider the following points:
> How outsourcing may increase the susceptibility of local
government to systemic corruption of its mission.
> The degree to which the service can be described and
monitored in terms of clear performance measures.
> The degree to which the service that is being outsourced
is, itself, critical or necessary to ensure that the function
is effectively carried out (e.g. professional services).
> The number of potential providers of the service.
> The economic costs and benefits of transitioning
to an outside provider of service.
> The political and social costs/benefits
when making the change.
Considering these factors leads the strategic manager
to a comprehensive view that considers not only frontend savings, but also the long-term effect of possible
failure by the “outsourced” service provider.
When a governmental service is outsourced, the
institutional knowledge and expertise held by the public
employees may be lost. The risk of failure is present, whether
for poor performance or un-sustained public support. The
public entity will bear the cost of restoring the service,

including the restoration of “in-house”
expertise and knowledge. This too must
be measured by a strategic manager
when considering outsourcing.
ROLE OF THE PUBLIC
PROCUREMENT PROFESSIONAL
What role should the public
procurement professional have when
determining whether or not to outsource
a particular governmental function?
In an interview with the Global
Delivery Report, Dawn Evans, president
and CEO of the Sourcing Interest
Group, observes that, “procurement
brings robust data to the table.”
Procurement professionals use
market intelligence in their sourcing
decisions and can bring compelling
data to outsourcing decisions. This
not only includes cost factors, but also
market research and the identification
of innovative suppliers, solutions
and process improvements.
Ideally, strategic outsourcing involves
all areas that have a stake in the
outcome – the internal business units,
legal and procurement. Procurement’s
experience running complex supply
chains, price negotiations and supplier
relationships, while adjusting to a
changing global environment, makes
it a valuable asset in determining the
optimal public outsourcing process.
HOW TO OUTSOURCE: ESSENTIAL
ELEMENTS OF THE PUBLIC
OUTSOURCING PROCESS
The process must be competitive,
fair and transparent, and capable
of delivering the best value for the
public. These public policy mandates
create an environment where the
procurement professional plays an
integral role in the outsourcing decision
and its execution. When a potential
outsourcing opportunity is identified,
the outsourcing process should embrace
the following work flow with the
understanding that it may be ended
short of completion at any time:
> Comprehensive risk assessment
(including an examination of public
interest, safety, health and security.)
> Determination of requirements. An
evaluation and statement of what is
needed, when it is needed and how
much is needed, which may include
considerations of historical usage,
future need, program objectives,
trends, demand analysis, market
analysis and the use of software
or other forecasting tools.
> Sourcing. A fair and transparent
process leading to the selection of
a supplier/contractor whose costs,
qualities, technologies, timeliness,
dependability and service best meet
the established requirements.
> Vendor performance and
accountability. Specific, measurable
performance criteria including service

CENTRAL ROLE OF THE CHIEF
PROCUREMENT OFFICER
Procurement professionals go beyond
negotiation to drive deals that encourage
suppliers to innovate and continuously
improve their processes, according
to Evans. Managing the elements
of an outsourcing process, formal
or informal, calls on the skills and
experience that a Chief Procurement
Officer uses every day in the normal
course of public purchasing. The Chief
Procurement Officer, Procurement
Director or Purchasing Manager
also acts as a professional resource
for decision-makers by assisting in
the outsourcing process in, but not
limited to, the following areas:
> Market and vendor research;
> Cost and pricing analysis;
> Assistance with risk assessments;
> Development of statements of work
and service level agreements;
> Management of competitive source
selections and evaluation teams;
> Contract negotiation,
formulation and award;
> Post-award vendor and
contract management; and
> Ability to communicate
effectively with all stakeholders
throughout the process.
RECOMMENDATIONS
Outsourcing has a direct impact
on a government entity’s ability to
function successfully and deliver
necessary services to the public.
The decision to outsource must
be well-informed and thoughtful
and should be supported by skilled
professionals with the strategic vision
and expertise to improve operations
while protecting the public good.
As a matter of course, the Chief
Procurement Officer promotes
competition, ensures transparency,
understands the place of the government
organization within the marketplace,
and manages the risks associated
with the purchasing process. These
competencies, together with the
inherently governmental nature of
the public procurement function,
establish the definitive and integral
contribution professional procurement
staff can bring to the outsourcing
decision and its successful execution.
While the final decision to outsource
may reside with the elected body or
senior executive, the effectiveness
of the outsourcing process and the
likelihood of a successful outcome
are greatly enhanced by the early
engagement and contributions of
the Chief Procurement Officer.

BACK PAGES [fred marks]
Knowing value when you see it
or the better part of my purchasing career, I tried to strike a balance between best
value and good service. I would purchase goods from authorized distributors,
contract for repairs of operating equipment from manufacturer-authorized repair
facilities and generally follow what I considered good purchasing practices. There’s
the rub: It was what my organization and I considered good practices.
When it came to defining service and value, we were proud of our use of concepts such as honesty,
fairness, integrity and the like but found them difficult, if not impossible, to quantify. We would
use adjectives such as excellent, very good, good, fair and poor to evaluate a bidder’s proposal.
We tried to assign a numerical rating to
each and add up the scores. We Buyers love
numbers – the larger the number, the more
points, thus the better Proposer. But that’s
not always true. A numerical rating system,
while apparently precise, can obscure the
strengths, weaknesses and risks of a Proposer.
At times we would ask for a narrative
to be used in conjunction with a
rating to assess qualifications. We thought it would provide a reasonable and rational basis
for determining a Proposer. But how could I determine deficiencies or weaknesses based
on the Proposer’s own language? Being concerned with words my
entire life, how do I know if a less-qualified Proposer just has someone
on staff who is a better writer than a more-qualified Proposer?
I had a sinking feeling and didn’t know if I was making a best judgment or
a colossal mistake about a Proposer (which I couldn’t define). It’s almost like
using the standard set by Justice Potter Stewart when ruling on a completely
unrelated subject: “I know it when I see it.” But the feeling remained with me.
The key here is, after reviewing the facts, “I know it when I see it”
is a standard best applied by professionals. Based on our experience,
knowledge, research and intangibles we can’t define at times, we make
a best judgment on a Proposal or a service. But what happens if our
judgment backfires, or worse yet, it’s a completely bad decision? I think
that’s why we have Committees who make these judgments and a
management structure that can approve or change our decisions.
How do we train the next generation of Professionals to do a better
job at this? Yes, to do a better job! I’ve always felt that we should pave the way for those
who follow us by setting standards. Not for them to meet, but for them to exceed!
Do we start taking this seriously by actively discussing the subject? Or do we continue
to hold classes on teaching the elements of a Contract? Or hold a primer on Request for
Proposals? It’s time to look to the future of our profession and train those who follow us to do
more and do it better. It should be our legacy. When we are in the Old Buyer’s Home drinking
our afternoon tea and talking about our successes, the new Buyers should come and visit,
pat us on the head, smile, and tell us how they exceeded our standards and expectations.

A numerical rating

There’s a reason
it’s called pumping Iron.
Iron = Strength.
Smart athletes know that pumping iron builds strength. And smart communities know that
successful infrastructure projects begin with the strength of ductile iron pipe.
Ductile iron pipe is strong—ten times stronger than PVC. It is reliable, easy to install and it
creates none of the laying and tapping headaches associated with PVC. And ductile iron
has environmental advantages—while PVC production creates toxins that have
caused some cities and corporations to ban it, iron pipe is made from recycled
thousands of communities trust the strength of ductile iron.
It works out everytime.
Iron Pipe. It’s What America Was Built On.
