Impact

When fully implemented, this system will provide a more efficient, effective, customer-oriented global logistics support system, and it is thus an important component of the Department's Management and Organizational Excellence strategic goal.

The consequences of the target shortfall include a delay in realizing end-to-end asset visibility across the enterprise and the extension of legacy system operations and maintenance costs that remain in service.

Reason for Shortfall
Funding approved at levels significantly less than requested. Consequences and impact include a delay in overall return on investment and moderate life-cycle cost growth.
Steps to Improve
Actions planned include a delay in overseas pilots and deployments consistent with projected available funding.

I/P: Competitive Sourcing

INDICATOR: Cost Savings or Cost Avoidance Generated through Competitive Sourcing
Department of State seal Outcome
JUSTIFICATION: This indicator measures the cost effectiveness of Competitive Sourcing results by comparing current cost of performance to the results of competitions between the public and private sectors.
FY 2006 PERFORMANCE Target
15% cost savings or cost avoidance of competed areas' baseline costs, predominantly from standard competitions.
Results
$79.2 million in projected cost savings to customers over 10 years, from one standard competition that was completed in FY 2006. This amount represents approximately 33% of the competed area's baseline costs. Customers are expected to save approximately $8 million per year, or $79.2 million over the life of the contract.
Rating Above Target
Impact
Achievement of this Competitive Sourcing cost savings and/or cost avoidance target contributes to the Department's success in conducting its vital foreign policy mission while being effective and accountable stewards of the taxpayer's money.
PERFORMANCE DATA Data Source
Competitive Sourcing Program Office.
Data Quality
(Verification)
OMB Circular A-76 provides guidance on how to calculate the cost of government performance versus the cost of contractor performance. The 15% targets for cost savings or cost avoidance refer to the percentage of the cost of the contract(s) services being competed. Until a particular service that is being competed has been identified (and its base costs determined), there is no dollar amount that can be cited in lieu of a percentage.
PAST PERFORMANCE 2005
$9.8 million in cost avoidance from streamlined competitions. This amount represents approximately 18% of competed areas' baseline costs.
2004
Baseline: $6.2 million, predominantly in cost avoidance from streamlined competitions. This amount represents approximately 44% of competed areas' baseline costs.
2003 N/A.
