11 11  Purchasing Mission:  To get our agencies what they need, when and where they need it, at the lowest overall cost MyFloridaMarketPlace Purchasing Mission

12 12 MyFloridaMarketPlace Use of System Rule Components Key Rule Components  Agencies will include 1% fee terms and conditions in all solicitations and agreements effective July 1  Vendors must be registered in MyFloridaMarketPlace in order to respond to solicitations or enter into new agreements effective July 1  Framework for defining exceptions to the 1% fee (early DRAFT)

13 13 MyFloridaMarketPlace Use of System Rule Exception Criteria Suggested Rule Exception Criteria  Framework for defining exceptions to the 1% fee (early DRAFT)  Exempt direct beneficiaries (i.e. citizens) of health and welfare programs  Qualifying Examples:Foster care services, family placement services  Non-qualifying Example:Claims processing services  Exempt government-to-government transactions  Qualifying Examples:Inter-agency purchases, inter-state purchases  Non-qualifying Example:Agency purchases from not-for-profits  Exempt pass-through grant activity  Qualifying Example:Agency payments funding research grants  Non-qualifying Example:Agency payments spending research dollars  Exempt regulated utilities  Qualifying Examples:Electricity, water  Non-qualifying Example:Local or long distance telecommunications

14 14 MyFloridaMarketPlace Use of System Rule Exception Criteria Additional Suggested Rule Exception Criteria  Feedback suggested creating exceptions to the 1% fee where  The requirement will interfere with the prompt fulfillment of state procurement requirements  The fee represents an inappropriate windfall for no value added by the eProcurement system  The fee is applied to citizen or employee payees, or to government payees  The fee is applied to prices fixed by law or government regulation

15 15 MyFloridaMarketPlace Use of System Rule Exception Criteria Forrester Report Cites the following benefits from eProcurement  Increased Productivity  Governments realize a range of savings by moving paper-intensive vendor solicitation processes online  Moving bid notifications to the Web allows governments to cut printing and mailing budgets by 75%  Streamlined Processes  Governments can cut the costs of administering a PO by more than 50%, to $50 or less, and shorten the approval cycle to minutes  Payment methods like EFT secures a new round of discounts from suppliers by guaranteeing prompt payments  Reduction on the Cost of Goods  Governments can secure price breaks by requiring suppliers to compete for bids against one another in reverse auctions  Pennsylvania has saved $10 million by buying raw materials like coal through Web-enabled reverse auctions  Governments can negotiate discounts using aggregated information – cutting commodity costs another 5% to 15%
