Four case studies highlight how organizations have implemented outsourcing, competitive sourcing, and public-private partnerships to achieve savings and better performance. First is NASA's initiative to outsource its computer desktop maintenance to the private sector. The second illustrates the use of competitive sourcing by the IRS as part of its effort to modernize. The third, Offutt Air Force Base's decision to compete more than 1,500 positions, is an example of the military’s efforts to shift more active duty personnel from support to combat-oriented positions. The fourth, a form of public-private partnership for maintenance of C-130 aircraft propeller assemblies at Robins Air Force Base, demonstrates the Air Force's commitment to reducing costs to make funds available for military modernization. irs, nasa, air forceContractingMarket-Based Government
