As the nation’s leading business intelligence firm supporting local government, ProcureAmerica has established a long and distinguishable track record in building expense reduction strategies that deliver significant results. ProcureAmerica’s pathway to success has revolved around three central themes: Relationships, Trust and Results. By concentrating on these values, the firm has built an extensive client base among school districts, cities, and counties in California and beyond — all while developing and maintaining valuable partnerships with loyal customers.
“Public sector clients are faithful to ProcureAmerica for several reasons, not the least of which being the results our team delivers…we don’t draw on client resources (time or otherwise) and our services are on a performance based platform that is 100% self-funding,” said CEO Fred Armendariz. “We are very proud to be able to produce tangible, long-lasting results for these agencies and the people they serve.”
In May of 2017, Gioconda Padilla, Director of Procurement and Contract Services of the Glendale Unified School District, contracted with ProcureAmerica to optimize costs and operations associated with waste and recycling, print management, utilities and telecommunications. As part of the District’s multi-year budget development process, they sought ProcureAmerica’s expertise to help permanently reduce costs and improve efficiency. Through this partnership, the District saved approximately $600,000 per year, or $3,000,000 over the course of five years.
Ms. Padilla returned to ProcureAmerica for similar consulting services when she took on a new role in the Torrance Unified School District as a Communication Services Director. Torrance Unified sought assistance with three expense reduction projects involving telecommunications, utilities and waste and recycling. On behalf of Torrance Unified, ProcureAmerica performed extensive studies, contract analyses and forensic invoice reviews while assessing the unique needs of each individual school. Operations were streamlined in each of the three service areas, resulting in $180,000 in annual savings for the District.
“ProcureAmerica’s involvement as a consultant has been very valuable, saving our District countless hours of research and analysis,” said Ms. Padilla. “I appreciate their comprehensive analysis and strategic recommendations and I would highly recommend their professional services to any organization interested in operational efficiency, cost reduction, and vendor transparency.”
Now with Salinas City Elementary School District as Assistant Superintendent, Ms. Padilla has again called on ProcureAmerica to embark on three new projects in waste and recycling, utilities and telecommunications. Trust built through consistent results and strong partnerships transcends geographical borders and stands the test of time.
