WEST POINT, NY — After flirting with the idea for nearly three years, the U.S. Army has decided not to outsource its janitorial services, according to the Boston Herald.
The decision from the Army’s Mission & Installation Contracting Command follows a years-long study on the cost-effectiveness of privatizing roughly 100 janitorial service positions, the story stated.
A similar study did, however, determine that it would be more cost-effective to outsource more than 300 maintenance positions including grounds care, the story noted.
The decisions face a 20-day review period, after which time an ultimate decision will be made, the story added.
According to the story, the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE) is considering an appeal of the proposed maintenance privatization.
