PRIVATIZATION: MAXIMIZING YOUR PUBLIC DOLLARS AND HOW TO GET STARTED
There are many reasons to look at the myriad of operational, maintenance, support, and even, management functions that can and should be "farmed out." No matter what the reason, from cost to productivity, from accountability to flexibility, privatization is a growing trend in American politics. We need to have a logical, predictable way of maximizing this evolution, rather than having it thrust upon us as an all encompassing mandate, without regard to efficiency or cost. By using consensus-building, customer and staff input, a step-by-step process, data analysis, and involvement by the elected (or policy) officials, privatization's benefits can be maximized. The process becomes easy to explain and understand.
