Case Study for Competitive Sealed Proposals

Case Study about Competitive Sealed Proposals

The 74th Texas Legislature through Senate Bill No. 1 and the 75th Texas Legislature through Senate Bill No. 583 allowed Texas School Districts the opportunity to utilize several different methods for the procurement of construction contracts. These methods were further defined by the 76th Texas Legislature (Senate Bill 669) and the 77th Texas Legislature (Senate Bill 510). Before this legislation passed, the law required Districts to hire the lowest bidder, with few exceptions, regardless of past experiences or relationships with Contractors. Now Districts have more say in how the contracts will be structured and who will do the work. They are now able to choose the alternative project delivery method that will yield the best value to the District.

It is intended that mistakes made and lessons learned utilizing this delivery method over the past few years and the productive discussions experienced by this committee over the past few months be presented to you in the form of a recommended practices handbook. Furthermore, our intent is to give all parties engaging in this procurement process a better understanding of their roles and responsibilities and ultimately to improve the usage of this delivery system. This document is not intended to be a legal interpretation of the laws defining this procurement method. You should consult legal counsel for consideration of all delivery methods. The Competitive Sealed Proposal delivery method allows the District to consider the qualifications of the Contractor as well as the proposal price in determining the best value to the District.

Case Study on World-Class Manufacturing and Productivity

Case Study about World-Class Manufacturing and Productivity

Abstract:~ The paper presents a literature review of the characteristics of a new form of work organization, known as world-class manufacturing (WCM), with respect to traditional Taylor-Fordist organization, and its impact on productivity. The analysis is primarily developed with reference to the world of manufacturing firms, focusing particularly on the roles established by organizational design based on processes, high-involvement work practices, positive industrial relations and ICT technologies while also considering their complementarities.

Introduction:~ Empirical research has widely documented, virtually without exceptions, enormous and persistent measured productivity differences across firms or establishments, even within narrowly defined industries. Syverson (2004), for example, demonstrates that within 4-digit SIC industries in the U.S manufacturing sector, the ratio of total factor productivity among plants at the 90th percentile of productivity distribution is in the order of 2 to 1 with respect to the 10th percentile, namely, twice the amount.
