Why would I want to go through that bid process if someone else has already done it? Just the process and the advertising requirements and the time it takes and all of it. The fact that OMNIA Partners exists to do that process, to do that for public entities, it’s a game-changer for us. It eliminates a huge amount of work. It simplifies the process.
Having the ability to choose from a long list of available contracts helps us manage tail spend by not having to run our own bid for every single large expenditure. We can leverage existing terms and conditions from the cooperative and use their established pricing as a benchmark. That lets the commodity managers focus time on projects with a larger potential for creating value through lower pricing or improved service.
Anytime we use an OMNIA Partners contract, it saves us between $500-$1,000 in administrative costs. When you are using dozens of cooperative contracts per year, that really starts to add up. When you get to numbers like 30,40, even $60,000 in savings, that’s a Buyer, that’s a Contract Coordinator for a lot of counties. I think those numbers are something that needs to be talked about when showing the value OMNIA Partners brings to our organization.
