Outsourcing to save $35 million a year in Tennessee

November 23, 2016 6:06 pm | Updated 2 weeks ago.

The State of Tennessee recently announced to outsource some of its jobs on a college campus as doing so would save about $35 million every year. The report was reviewed by a third – party and was then released by the Gov. Bill Haslam.  An internal report published in March had already estimated that outsourcing in college campuses, state parks, and prison would help the state in saving a lot of money.

However, a few senior managerial personnel in the college campuses had initially criticized the initial report on outsourcing. They had also gone vociferous with their objections it would reduce benefits for the existing employees in some way or other. The governor had however reiterated that money can be saved without retrenching the services of neither the existing staff nor their benefits. He also mentioned that outsourcing might in the long run help in lowering the tuition fees.
