Crosscutting Efficiencies .... .... -$190
An offset of $190,000 is included to reflect Departmental crosscutting cost savings. These reductions consist of one-time needs for computers and furniture, and anticipated savings that will result from efficiencies. Some of the areas targeted for savings include: Facilities Management, JCN/WAN IT, Human Resources, and Centralized Procurement. The Department continues to evaluate its programs and operations with the goal of achieving across-the-board economies of scale that result in increased efficiencies, reduced duplication of efforts, and cost savings. The crosscutting savings identified impact the majority of the components in the Department, and are the result of improving business practices in the following way: consolidation of facility management, including optimization of work space standards and the consolidation/collocation of field space; improved deployment of human resources personnel across Department components; the consolidation of duplicative IT support functions and services performed by components using the JCN WAN; and centralized procurement for relocation of services, including household storage/shipment and residence contracts.
