    The Nassau School and Municipal Savings Initiative is a cooperative effort among Nassau BOCES, Nassau County, and Nassau County school districts and public agencies to reduce costs by sharing services. The initiative has saved $10 million so far. The project began in earnest in 2009, although school officials have been meeting and planning for implementation since 2006. The initiative is supported by a $1 million 21st Century Demonstration Grant from the New York State Department of State.

The grant Steering Committee initially targeted four cost-cutting areas: cooperative purchasing, information technology and telecommunications (ITT), internal audit and out-of-district transportation.

Subcommittees were created in each of these areas with the goal of demonstrating cost savings and service-delivery improvements among Nassau BOCES, Nassau County, and Nassau County school districts and public agencies.

Please take a few minutes to read about the exciting work underway. The goal is to save taxpayers money. Please feel free to reach out with any suggestions or questions.
