Cut Utility Costs Instead of Services
An energy and telecom cost audit can help you find money for the services your constituents depend upon. Cost Control Associates has saved millions of dollars for our government clients. Our analysis team has extensive experience working with municipalities and government entities that want to save money on energy, water and sewer, waste removal and telecom costs.
We have helped more than 500 local governments and agencies across the U.S. Every year it seems that more and more expenses are pushed onto city, county and state 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 utility 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 emergencies. This is where an energy and telecom cost audit can help.
We offer our cost audit services on a contingency fee basis. We will analyze your organization’s account invoices without charging upfront or additional fees. When we find savings, our fee is paid from a percentage of those findings. If we find nothing, you pay nothing.
To help you meet competitive bidding requirements, we have a contract in place with two leading purchasing cooperatives: NCPA and 1GPA. Most local governmental agencies 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.
