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.
