Why the $1.3 billion cost of outsourcing llC is more than $1 billion
I know it’s hard to believe, but $1bn is a lot of money.
A few months ago, the CEO of a major American healthcare company called for a public bidding process to determine how much it would pay for the work of a few hundred of its employees to work on an outsourced call center.
The price tag for the job, however, was far from clear.
The company was looking at a few dozen workers and didn’t know how many would be available for the position.
The call center was not only one of the most expensive IT tasks in healthcare, but also one of its most difficult to execute, according to the company.
The contract was awarded on a tight schedule, with no advance notice.
In a phone interview with me, the company CEO, Jeffrey Peltz, acknowledged the difficulty of the job but denied that outsourcing the job to an outsourcer was costing them too much.
Peltzer’s comment came as a response to a New York Times report that showed that outsourcing would cost taxpayers $1,084 million over the next two years.
The Times story, citing a “sources close to the matter,” reported that the cost of the outsourced contract was estimated at $1 million per worker per day.
The cost to taxpayers is roughly $1 trillion over a two-year period.
The NYT report cited two independent estimates that put the cost at between $3 billion and $4 billion per year.
It also quoted a study by the New America Foundation, a nonpartisan think tank, that concluded that the outsourcing cost taxpayers about $1-billion a year.
In the meantime, the outsourcers continued to hire more workers.
This week, The Associated Press reported that at least two outsourers had laid off tens of thousands of workers, with the number of employees in the contract workforce running into the hundreds of thousands.
The workers were laid off in response to the recent hurricanes, and the company blamed the cuts on a “federal disaster relief package.”
The AP reported that some employees in some of the jobs were not offered severance payments or other compensation in time for their termination.
The New York Post reported that in some instances, the workers were fired after they were laidoff.
A spokesperson for the company told me that some of these workers had worked for the outsourcing company for years and had never been offered severances.
The outsourcing contract was not a one-time occurrence.
According to Peltzel, the outsourcing company was not looking for a single individual or a single contract.
“This was a long-term arrangement,” he said.
“We were not looking to hire one person or one contract.
We were looking for people with the ability to work together and really work together to solve the challenges of our business.”
The outsourcing contract was the largest IT outsourcing contract awarded to an outsourcing company in history, according in the New York City Department of City Planning, the city’s chief planning and development office.
“The company is paying $1 to $1 and a half million dollars per worker,” said an employee who was not authorized to speak publicly.
The source told me the outsourcing contract cost taxpayers nearly $1 for each worker laid off.
According the Times article, the cost to the city was $1-$1.2 billion.
The outsourcing company had already laid off hundreds of workers before this week.
“I’m sorry,” Peltze said when asked about the cost.
“That’s not true.”
The New America study found that outsourcing costs taxpayers $7,400 per worker.
“Our study shows that outsourcing cost more than one-third of the cost for the $2.3 trillion in IT contracts awarded in 2016, with about $2 billion in total costs,” the report said.
The study found $2,766,000 was spent on the outsources by the city for every worker laid-off.
“A large majority of the costs for the cost-sharing, such as salaries and other benefits, were paid by outsourcing contractors, while the remainder was paid by the public,” the study said.
According a spokesperson for New America, “We have not reviewed the study.
The analysis was based on publicly available information and did not provide any information that was not available to the public.””
As a matter of fact, the report’s methodology is not credible, as it is based on incomplete data.
The analysis was based on publicly available information and did not provide any information that was not available to the public.”
