Evergreen Solutions, as a subcontractor to The TransPar Group, conducted a study with Orange County Public Schools (OCPS) Transportation Department. The study focused on organizational efficiency; data reporting; staffing and organization; vehicle maintenance; and various other aspects of the transportation system employed at OCPS. The overall goal was to increase operational efficiency in all areas possible in order to reduce costs in the transportation function of the school district.
Evergreen Solutions focused primarily on state-level, finance, and compliance matters. Specifically, Evergreen determined which costs are out of line based upon rider counts, miles, buses, and Florida comparisons as well as established action items to address each inefficiency identified. Evergreen Solutions also analyzed the current process for collecting transportation data in the school district and determined if the data are accurately compiled and reported to the Florida Department of Education.
