Montgomery County Leads All Ohio Counties to Taxpayer Savings

On Tuesday, October 25, 2011, the Montgomery County Commissioners approved a resolution that will allow the members of the County Commissioners’ Association of Ohio (CCAO, representing all 88 counties) and the Southwest Ohio Purchasers for Government (SWOP4G) to utilize a purchasing agreement negotiated by Montgomery County in August of this year.

The contract is with Staples Contract and Commercial, Incorporated for various janitorial supplies.  Both CCAO and SWOP4G represent a significant number of governments, including counties, cities, villages and townships throughout Ohio. 

“This is the kind of meaningful cooperation that can result in real savings for the taxpayers of Ohio,” said Montgomery County Commission President Debbie Lieberman.

The Staples purchasing agreement currently saves Montgomery County over 12% annually on janitorial supplies. 

“I am very pleased that we are able to support other local governments in Ohio to reduce their costs,” commented Commissioner Judy Dodge.  “ I am also very proud that our staff was able to negotiate such a competitive price agreement and that they took advantage of existing relationships to extend the discounted prices to other local governments.”

The agreement runs through June 30, 2012 and has an option to extend for four more years.  “Those additional four years give the participating governments price stability for these products,” Commissioner Dan Foley stated.  “When you are dealing with the kind of budget cuts we are seeing across Ohio, managing the cost of everyday products can help keep a local government strong.”
