When Considering Outsourcing Any Tech Services, we have Applied Six Key Criteria 1. Direct Student Contact - the safety of our children is paramount. Similar CMS standard of employee screening should be applied 2. Significant, Sustainable Cost Savings Delivery – that largely outweighs any impact to the schools 3. Stand Alone Services – which can be discreetly carved out with no residual, negative operational impact 4. Areas of CMS Marginal Expertise/Resourcing – where an external vendor can do it better and cheaper with little to no risk 5. Low Risk – relatively easy to ensure service quality & maintain service levels with minimal difficulty to return in-house 6. Minimal RIF Impact to CMS Employees
Understanding the Criteria for Consideration To recommend to the BOE -- on Feb 14, 2012 – additional outsourcing opportunities within key areas of CMS that deliver on the following criteria: • People – minimize negative impact to CMS employees -- reduction in force/salary/benefits, shifting of work responsibilities • Money - return of substantial, ongoing net savings to the CMS Operating Budget when brought to scale • Service – maintain or exceed current service levels and service quality to key stakeholders in support of student achievement • Risk – minimize scope of risk to CMS – ease of returning service in-house • Measurement – ability to reliably project and measure the most critical aspects of the outsourced effort – $ savings, service quality, etc.
Understanding the Criteria for Consideration Breakdown Time Procedures for support are currently in place and implemented based on defined priority timeline. People Selection would result in reduction in force affecting current CMS employees Selection would affect significant number of current employees, if brought to scale
Understanding the Criteria for Consideration Breakdown Money Savings issue example below, no substantial savings when brought to scale and no net savings to the CMS operating budget
Risk Understanding the Criteria for Consideration Breakdown • Distribution of passwords, network and server risk • Background checks are not real-time • Safety for our staff and students • Learning environment hazard, disruptive to daily instruction due to lack of school/support rapport affecting student achievement • Badges and access costly due to high turnover rates • Data security risk
Understanding the Criteria for Consideration Breakdown Service/Support Procedures for support are well-defined and implemented: Priority 5 -Resolution contingent upon project scope, printer replacement, and renaming of computers Priority 4 -Initial contact made via phone, 80% resolved within 10 business days; classroom printing and computers Priority 3 -Respond within 48 hours , 90% resolved within 5 business days, computer labs and Interactive White Boards Priority 2 -Respond within 24 hours , 90% resolved within 2 business days, server based applications and school administrative personnel Priority 1 -Respond within 1 hour , 95% resolved within 24 hours, server or major systems down or active testing period

These contractors enable us to do significantly more with a significantly lower cost Technician • Annual cost of $78, 000 for contractor, would require a pay grade of 8/$88, 214 salary and benefits plus • Costly material required – truck, ladders, testers, hand tools • Certifications required – BISCI manufacturers certifications to maintain warranty • Can utilize contracting company at peak times for additional support with little or no down time Hardware Support • Six full-time employees provided for an annual cost of $122, 100. 00 or $20, 350 per employee, would require a pay grade of 6/$67, 917 salary and benefits plus • Cost of trucks, storage, tools • Certifications required by manufacturer to maintain warranty • Potential charges for untimely returns of warranty parts Technical Services
Understanding the Assessment Tool What This Is of some This IS NOT Color Index CMS is high an informed preliminary assessment of the viability initial outsourcing options a recommended list of areas to outsource likely will not satisfy criteria OR risk of failure to could meet criteria but more information needed likely will satisfy criteria ? externally driven by bidding process
