Schock Market Prepares Privatization Market for San Luis Obispo Wastewater Collections
This market records claims for a proposed privatization of the City of San Luis Obispo Wastewater Collections Program.
The goal is to achieve $1.2 million in savings through privatization, over ten years. These savings may be used to fund local community development.
To generate momentum for this proposal, claimholders in this market have an opportunity to share a proposed $121,979 payout from the winning contractor(s)
Calculating Your Bid:
Here are the operating expenses for the City of San Luis Obispo Wastewater Collections Program, proposed 2021-22 budget:
City Staffing $976,441
Contract Services $51,035
Other Operating Costs $162,319
Total Annual $1,219,795
This market seeks to achieve savings for the City of San Luis Obispo Wastewater Collections Program by reducing operating costs, not by selling program assets.
Privatization of operating costs at public agencies can often achieve savings of 10% or more. (To the extent that an agency already contracts for services, the savings may be less.) For the City of San Luis Obispo Wastewater Collections Program, a 10% savings equates to approximately $121,979 per year.
Participants in this market are trying to price their bids at or below this amount--expected savings per year.
This market has 1,000 total claims available. Participants are limited to 1 claim each.
Below are sample bids with a reasonable chance for payout:
$12 bid (X 1,000 claims in market = $12,000 guessed savings per year. This is likely a low bid.)
$120 bid (X 1,000 claims in market = $120,000 guessed savings per year. This is likely a high bid.)
This market proposes that the contractor payout be distributed as follows:
If privatization proceeds, any payout will be determined and paid by the winning contractor. The contractor may choose to fund a payout, or not. (Contractors that benefit from privatization and seek to promote it in additional communities presumably have an interest in honoring payouts.)
