to save New York $250 million:
Stop paying pricey private consultants to do the jobs state workers can do better.
If New Yorks state government is broke, why is it wasting hundreds of millions of dollars each year? Here are just three of the dozens of ways the state can save big bucks for all of us:
Valuable State Budget COUPON Take 43% OFF state transportation costs: SAVE $123 Million
State leaders can save New York Taxpayers at least $123 million a year in transportation engineering costs.
Instead of spending $289 million on costly consultant engineers to design and inspect our roads, highways and bridges, the state could get the same work done using in-house engineers for just $166 million and pass the savings on to you. No Expiration Date. Limit One.
Valuable State Budget COUPON Take 41% OFF health care inspection costs:SAVE $13 Million
The state paid more than $13 million more than necessary for inspection services provided by contractors for health care facilities such as hospitals and nursing homes. Last year, the state paid out $32 million to contract inspectors when it could have paid its own Health Department employees just $19 million to do the same work.
Why pay more when state workers deliver high quality services for less? No Expiration Date. Limit One.
Valuable State Budget COUPON Take 68% OFF computer services costs: SAVE $15 Million
Get with the program!
The state paid out nearly $22 million in costs for computer programmers, almost $15 million more than if they had used state computer programmers who are tested and trained to do the same work.
Lets get the latest version of taxpayers savings installed, so that we are all compatible and working more efficiently to keep costs online. No Expiration Date. Limit One.
These are just a few of the savings the State of New York could achieve by using state workers instead of consultants. State workers. The best value for your money.
