Online extra: Is this a share-in-savings project? New tools help decide

The Share-in-Savings Program Office at the General Services Administration has developed two tools to evaluate projects for use with share-in-savings contracting, said Ken Buck, director of the office.

One tool, for business case evaluation, is available at for agencies. It will score projects on suitability and recommend improvements.

The second tool, for proposal evaluation, will be available soon at the same Web site, Buck said. It will let contractors vet their ideas for projects that could be done with share-in savings.

GSA is also developing case studies that will guide contracting officers through the process of share-in-savings contracting.

GSA and the Council for Excellence in Government are planning a series of workshops between February and June that will bring together agency procurement, budget and program management staff with contractors, and Capitol Hill staff to discuss best practices for share-in savings, said David McClure, vice president of e-government at the council.
