Total Cost of Ownership at Work

In previous communications, we have discussed the philosophy commonly referred to as Total Cost of Ownership (TCO). TCO is a way of calculating the cost associated with securing and maintaining a product or service by taking into consideration both time and money.

    But how do you put TCO to work? Well, the COSE Office Supply Program is a great place to start.  Let’s look at how.

    TCO at work

    For many organizations, the most common challenge when purchasing office supplies is the inability to pinpoint the total cost for their organization’s office supplies. This challenge typically stems from conducting price comparisons, which often leads to purchasing from multiple vendors.

    With the COSE Office Supply Program, you can consolidate your purchases down to a single vendor. This vendor consolidation allows you to confidently calculate the out of pocket cost of your organization’s office supplies, and helps ensure that your organization is getting a more efficient solution. 

    How? By consolidating vendors, you also cut the number of invoices in need of processing, and the amount of shipping and delivery charges. While it may not seem like much, this really can equate to more than substantial cost savings for your organization.

    So then we are left with the question, which vendor do you choose?

    COSE has made the decision easy for you by working with Office Depot to negotiate the deepest discounts over the broadest range of products. These discounted products offer an average discount of 30% off retail price, and can be accessed through your Office Depot online account by shopping under the “best value” filter. You’ll also get the same great savings by visiting any of your local OfficeMax or Office Depot stores with your Office Depot Store Purchasing Card in hand.  

    Want to further reduce your TCO? You get free shipping on online orders over $50 in addition to free in-store pickup. Not to mention that when you choose to do a free in-store pickup, items available in store will be ready within one hour!

    All things considered, the COSE Office Supply Program has fully integrated the TCO model in order to provide you with all of these great features and benefits. It is an exceptional reference to how your organization can take TCO, and apply it throughout your purchasing process for acquiring and maintaining products and services to achieve great savings.

    1-888-OhioComp has helped our employers navigate the Transitional Work Grant process and to implement their programs, which helps to return injured workers back to their job with light-duty modifications until they are cleared for full-duty workload.  

    Having a BWC-approved transitional work plan allows injured employees to return to light-duty work safely while they earn a paycheck. By putting the approved plan into operation, it can also qualify an employer for up to a 10% BWC premium reduction and saves them money by not incurring the additional costs associated with long absences, such as hiring temporary workers or overtime.

    Pre-Check

    A transitional work plan:

    • Reduces the average number of days absent due to an injury by 46%
    • Reduces medical costs by 11%
    • Cuts indemnity costs by 22%

  • Vote 'Yes' on Issues 1, 9 on Tuesday

    Voters will be confronted with two important issues when they arrive at the ballot box on Tuesday, May 8. After careful analysis and consideration, GCP business leaders from across Northeast Ohio, recommend voting “Yes” on Issues 1 and 9.

    Vote ‘Yes; on Issue 1:  Congressional Redistricting

    Pre-Check

    The GCP Board offered formal support for statewide Issue 1, which would create a more

    bi-partisan, public process for drawing U.S. Congressional districts. Significant minority party support would be required for the legislature to approve a new map. Issue 1 offers rules that would limit the extent to which counties, municipal corporations, and townships can be split between districts; the City of Cleveland would remain whole within its district.  

     The plan cleared the legislature, with overwhelming support from both political parties, prior to the deadline for proposed Constitutional amendments initiated by the Ohio General Assembly to be filed with the Secretary of State.  Due to the passage of the legislature’s resolution, Issue 1 will appear on the ballot on May 8.  The proposal would take effect for the next redistricting process in 2021, following the 2020 census.

    Vote ‘Yes’ on Issue 9:  Cuyahoga County Health and Human Services (HHS)  

    Members of the Greater Cleveland Partnership (GCP) have also endorsed Cuyahoga County’s two-year renewal of the Health and Human Services (HHS) levy. The Cuyahoga County HHS renewal levy, Issue 9, is a two-year renewal of the 3.9 mill levy and is the smaller of the two County HHS levies. It generated approximately $104 million in 2016 – 2017 and costs a homeowner $135.10 on a $100,000 home. Combined with the 4.8 mill eight-year levy—renewed in 2016 and set to expire in 2024—the County collects slightly over $230 million to fund critical social services.

    GCP has long supported both HHS levies. GCP leadership will continue to actively work with Cuyahoga County to determine the need and future structure of the HHS levy when it is up for renewal in 2020.


    Ensure your voice is heard. Vote “Yes” on Issue 1 and Issue 9 on Primary Election Day.

    Issue 9

    A two-year renewal of the Cuyahoga County Health and Human Services (HHS) levy, Issue 9, passed with about 73% of the vote. The GCP leadership will continue to actively work with Cuyahoga County to determine the need and future structure of HHS levies going forward.

    Pre-Check

    Issue 1

    Issue 1 will create a more bi-partisan, public process for drawing U.S. Congressional districts and it was authorized with approximately 75% of the vote. Issue 1 offers rules limiting the extent to which counties, municipal corporations, and townships can be split between districts; the City of Cleveland will remain whole within its district.  

    Looking ahead

    Looking ahead to this November’s General Election, the electorate will decide one of Ohio’s two allotted U.S. Senators, key U.S. Congressional seats, a new Governor and statewide posts, 99 Ohio House seats, and 10 state Senators.
