This is what ~$80 billion of annual construction spend looks like (not including alteration and/or renovation of existing existing building square footage).
We believe, and have solid evidence to demonstrate, that we can reduce the cost of building and maintaining the building environment of the education services sector with assertive advocacy in consensus and open source standards. That would be $1.6 billion of avoided cost. In any industry other than the education industry, $1.6 billion of avoided cost is meaningful. The difficulty we face, however, is that working to reduce cost is not as tangible as working to increase revenue. It is difficult to count, and ascertain, something that does not happen. “A penny saved is a penny earned” generally does not apply to the education industry and you have the exponential increase in the cost of education in the US as proof.
Additionally, of the $300 billion spent on administration, operations and maintenance, another 1 percent can be removed simply by using consensus standards processes to reduce redundancy and destructive competition.
