TN Wins National Award for Facilities Management Outsourcing


TN Wins National Award for Facilities Management Outsourcing
tn.gov Thursday October 22, 2015

Tennessee’s first experience with using a private company to manage state buildings has won a national award and sparked interest from other state governments across the U.S. Tennessee’s facilities management outsourcing program won the Innovations in Government award in the infrastructure category at the annual conference of the National Association of State Chief Administrators (NASCA) held in Denver. Tennessee Department of General Services Commissioner Bob Oglesby, who accepted the award on behalf of Tennessee, said the award represents a significant success not just for the department but for all Tennessee State Government. Under the program, Tennessee contracted with a private firm that specializes in real estate management to manage and maintain most multi-tenant state office buildings, which are operated by DGS. DGS still provides oversight of the vendor and its work. Oglesby said facilities management outsourcing in DGS-operated buildings saved the state $12.9 million in the first two years of the program. Three other states also winning awards were Pennsylvania, for its transformation of procurement business; Minnesota, for its MnSAFE (Safety Accountability for Everyone) financial management program; and Pennsylvania, for its Commonwealth Mentoring Program.
