As my colleague Geoff Segal noted last week, OMB recently released its Report on Competitive Sourcing Results, Fiscal Year 2004 (press release | full report). He noted that every dollar spent on competitive sourcing during fiscal 2004 will produce $20 in savings. Here are some other highlights from the report: Sounds like good news to me. But apparently some aren't happy: If I were in a leadership position in a federal employee's union, I might take the alternative view that this report validates the competitive success of the membership. And if I were a union member, I might find it odd that my leaders were effectively downplaying my ability to compete and work in the taxpayers' best interest.
