Equipment Maintenance Management Program QPA, RFP 9-36

The New Approach to Equipment Maintenance

In May 2008, the State of Indiana established a pilot program for an Equipment Maintenance Management Program (EMMP). As a result, the State confirmed that by having an Equipment Maintenance provider assess risk based on the equipment portfolio as a whole and price accordingly, the State would save on maintenance repair costs and be more knowledgeable about their equipment fleet service needs.

After the favorable impact of the pilot program, the Indiana Department of Administration established a Quantity Purchase Agreement (QPA 11437) with the Remi Group for an EMMP on January 1, 2010, via a competitive bid process. The State obtains a minimum of 25% savings off of the existing service provider or 25% of the industry risk assessment service price.
