Reducing Service Contract Spending Can Yield Majority Of Savings Required From Sequestration, Contracting Expert Says

The four-page memorandum, "Reducing Spending on Service Contracts in Order to Comply with Sequestration," was released Feb. 11 during AFGE's 2013 Legislative and Grassroots Mobilization Conference. AFGE paid for the study, but the opinions and conclusions were Tiefer's alone.

The memorandum recommends four established and completely legal options for reducing spending on service contracts. By applying these tools, agencies can reduce their substantial spending on service contracts to comply with sequestration, often with minimal impact on services, Tiefer concluded.

A PDF of the memorandum is available here: http://afgeunionblog.files.wordpress.com/2013/02/sequestration_4-pager_single_feb6-2.pdf
