Just 35 miles east of Orlando, Brevard County is home to the Kennedy Space Center, Port Canaveral and 72 miles of Atlantic Ocean beaches. With its tropical weather, cultural activities, educational and recreational opportunities, high-tech industries and family-friendly atmosphere, the “Space Coast” offers an exceptional quality of life to its half million residents.
In an effort to reduce overall expenses, Brevard County contracted with Cost Control Associates to conduct its Energy, Telecom and Cellular Cost Recovery and Reduction Pro-grams. The Cost Control team would hunt for over-charges and errors that would require refunds as well as evaluate existing rates and services with the hope of producing annual cost savings.
The county had no funds budgeted to pay for such an extensive review, so they were delighted to learn that Cost Control Associates could perform their services on a contingency basis. With no upfront costs, the consulting firm would take its fees out of the refunds and savings produced. If they found nothing, Brevard County would pay nothing.
“Cost Control Associates uncovered more than $108,000 in refunds and annual cost savings.”
Cost Control Associates produced more than $108,000 in refunds and savings for Brevard County. The telecom review alone resulted in a substantial single refund of $43,427! Now that goes a long way toward easing the budget.
“We took great pleasure in knowing that Cost Control Associates produced enough savings to retain an office position that would have been eliminated.”
