Cut Costs Instead of Services
We’ve Saved Millions of Dollars for Government Clients
Every year it seems that more and more expenses are pushed onto city, state and county governments. Yet city managers still have facilities and properties to maintain, programs to run and residents to keep happy.
We understand the frustrations of managing expenses while maintaining programs and services. Many of your costs and services are fixed, yet you are constantly asked to spend less or find more money for add-ons and surprises.
We can help you find that money. Cost Control Associates has extensive experience working with municipalities and government entities—we have helped more than 500 local governments and agencies across the U.S.
Many of our services are offered on a contingency fee basis. If we find nothing, you pay nothing. There is no charge to talk to us about our services, and there are no upfront costs to analyze your organization’s invoices. When we find savings, our fee is paid from a percentage of those findings.
To help you meet competitive bidding requirements, we have a contract in place with NCPA, a leading purchasing cooperative. Most local governmental agencies and school districts have the ability to piggyback on contracts that are publicly solicited through a lead public agency.
The Value of a Purchasing Cooperative
A purchasing cooperative reduces your procurement costs by allowing public agencies to take advantage of existing contracts to purchase the goods and services they need from local and national vendors. This pooled purchasing power means public and private schools, cities, counties and state agencies as well as colleges, universities and Native American communities can save actual budget dollars while taking advantage of best business practices.
Cost Control Associates is currently allied with two purchasing cooperatives: National Cooperative Purchasing Alliance (NCPA) and 1 Government Procurement Alliance (1GPA). If you aren’t already a member, consider joining! Your membership is free.
