Title: Alternate Service Delivery Candidate Report for Custodial ServicesCritical Path: Alternate Service Delivery CommitteeAUTHORIZATIONRECOMMENDATIONS
1. That the Public Service be directed to initiate proceedings through the ModifiedManaged Competition process for the contracting out of Custodial Services.
REASON FOR THE REPORT
Potential contracting out initiatives require the Public Service to follow the ModifiedManaged Competition process, adopted by Council on March 21, 2012, and theLetter of Understanding between the City of Winnipeg and The Canadian Union of Public Employees, Local 500 Re: Change Initiatives.
IMPLICATIONS OF THE RECOMMENDATIONS
The Public Service will follow the Alternate Service Delivery / Modified ManagedCompetition process with the intention of implementing an alternative operatingmodel for Custodial Services (for office buildings and aquatic facilities).
The recommendations for Custodial Services (office buildings and aquatic facilities)may result in potential savings for the City in the order of approximately $1,000,000annually once fully implemented. It assumes an aggressive timeline for reduction of positions through attrition and redeployment.
If Custodial Services for both office buildings staff (30 FTEs) and aquatic facilitiesstaff (23 FTEs), were to be implemented at the same time, the ability of the Planning,Property and Development department to redeploy 53 staff would be limited.
