More Mailing Options Come With Cheaper Prices
Texas state government cut its costs for overnight and express mail services by rewriting the Request for Proposal (RFP) to allow regional vendors to compete against the established national delivery companies.
The initial contract didn’t demand vendors have the capacity to deliver nationally, which isn’t required for the majority of the state’s mail. The state awarded the contract to a regional vendor and national vendors, saving 37.1 percent over the previous contract. This has yielded $13.62 million in savings since January 2009. In November 2012, new contracts were awarded to a regional vendor and a national vendor, and achieved an additional 6.2 percent savings.
