TBC offers great economic development and savings to governments. The TBC Method provides for growth opportunities in the communities where the generally underutilized government assets now reside. Government facilities that are potential candidates for closure (e.g. Department of Defense or Department of Energy installation), as well as activities such as laboratories or other active operations that have viable commercial markets are ideally suited for oversight by a TBC. State and local government IT or CIO functions are well suited for TBC, as well as, a host of other commercial type government operations including facility management, logistics, auditing, machine shops and other service functions. The TBC Method provides for savings to the government because while the government installation no longer must maintain the assets and the personnel, it continues to have access to them on a contractual basis, thus providing the surge capability mentioned below. The true “Key for Success” in the TBC Method is that it really can create a potential for economic growth by focusing on the government’s mission while utilizing the former government employees (“Transitional Benefit Employees” or “TBE”) to grow new business opportunities.
Under the TBC Method, the government will realize economic savings not only in non-recurring costs but also recurring costs. It is estimated that a typical TBC transaction can be accomplished within six months, with savings being realized shortly thereafter; by contrast, under other processes such as the A-76 process, the transaction may take up to four years with savings not recognized until the end of the fifth year. Since the time is compressed to conduct a TBC transaction, the costs are necessarily reduced. In contrast, outsourcing and the OMB Circular A-76 process places significant economic costs on the government that they simply cannot afford-especially today.
Another key benefit of the TBC Method is its ability to provide for surge capability, which provides the government with the ability to “reach back” on a temporary basis through the TBC and associated contractual arrangements into the nonprofit, private sector, and/or the NBUs to use the assets and TBEs in the event of an emergency or surge in workload. This seems to be a constant need in America with Katrina’s, floods, and other disasters. In contrast, under the old OMB A-76, the government may have to reduce its workforce by as much as a third to meet its Most Efficient Organization (“MEO”) cost reduction goals. By reducing its workforce under the MEO, the government sacrifices mission flexibility in the event of a national security emergency or spike in workload. Under the TBC Method, in the event of a national security emergency or spike in workload, the NBUs not only likely will have the full staffing of existing skilled employees capable of performing the required work, these NBUs have the flexibility to rapidly expand its workforce free from the delays caused government hiring policies and procedures.
