Managed Competition Program
The City of Charlotte has an active managed competition program involved with reviewing City services for possible competition, optimization, or benchmarking with the private sector.
Managed competition in Charlotte, is an umbrella term for the host of activities contained in the City's competitive bid program. It describes a planned approach for service delivery, whether the service is outsourced (no public sector competition) or private sector firms are invited to compete against the public sector for the right to provide a particular service.
Managed competition is part of a larger strategy designed to address the problem of balancing scarce resources, little or no new revenues, and no property tax rate increases against escalating costs of and demands for City services.
