Full report in PDF format


  • The Support Program generally performed well in helping state agencies reduce costs. Its purchasing services provided state and local government entities with reduced prices for commodities and services through volume discounts. The program's vehicle maintenance, vehicle rental, and federal surplus property distribution services also helped state agencies control their costs. If the Program were discontinued, its customers would still be able to purchase needed commodities and services, but their costs would increase. However, due to recent changes to put the program's aircraft pool on a full cost recovery basis, future demand for these services is uncertain. If the program is unable to fully use its aircraft, the fleet and its staffing should be reduced. The program could also privatize more activities, such as contracting for a centralized vehicle maintenance program.
