Multi-Local Government Aggregation Programs: A Tool for Implementation
Multi-municipal aggregation programs can be incredibly valuable to assist local governments with implementation of technical and/or high upfront cost projects. Aggregation programs provide lower cost and turnkey services to local governments by leveraging the purchasing and decision making power of participants. Further, these programs remove several key technical, procurement, and decision-making challenges that local governments face by providing a centralized procurement/contracting process and the resources to effectively engage utilities, address legal considerations, access funding or financing, on-board trusted consultants, and navigating technical decision-making in a timely manner. This session will provide an example of DVRPC’s Regional Streetlight Procurement Program (RSLPP), a multi-municipal aggregation program that enabled more than 60 municipalities to convert their street lighting systems to LED. Through the program, DVRPC estimates that individual project costs were 20-30% less than traditional municipally led procurement methods, and projects were implemented with a high success rate (86% of municipalities who entered the program completed their projects and all but one of those who did not proceed completed an LED conversion on their own as a result of their participation). This guide provides step-by-step information that will assist regional and multi-government groups with developing and implementing a multi-local government / aggregation procurement and implementation program, and the lessons learned can be applied to other applications of aggregated procurement and implementation for local governments as well.
