  • Outsourcing Benefits to Ocean Pines Golf and Food and Beverage Operations

  • Recommendations

What Is It?

  • Contracting with an independent party to perform certain functions, manage certain operations or segments of an entity’s business
  • A fee is paid to the management company for its services
  • The entity continues to be responsible for the success and effectiveness of the operations

What Is It Not?

  • It is not a lease
  • It is not transferring the risks and rewards of ownership to the management company (the bottom line profit and loss is retained)
  • It is not giving up control

Outsourcing (cont’d)

Why Do It?

  • A management company is engaged because it has experience and resources which the contracting entity does not presently have, and can perform better than the client
  • The benefits are a better managed operation
  • The improvement in operations, either better performance or improved profitability, provides a greater benefit than the costs of the management company (fees and other costs)

Sept. 16, 2009- Golf Task Force states in its Report:

However, the GTF believes that we can improve within the current framework and will leave it to others to pursue more radical alternatives.”

We See Significant Benefits to Entering into a Contract to Manage both the Golf and Food and Beverage (F&B) Operations of the Association

  • Initial Focus was on the Benefits for the Golf Operation
  • Initial Skepticism about the F&B Benefits
  • Visits to Client Locations and Discussions with Members was Invaluable
  • Concluded that Linking both Golf and F&B was Highly Desirable
  • Further Concluded that for OP the Potential Benefits of Outsourcing F&B Were Greater Than for Golf
  • Many of the Benefits to be Derived from the Knowledge and Experience Are Common To Both Operations
conclusions cont d
Conclusions (cont’d)

The Financial Cost of Outsourcing Only One of the Two Operations Results in a Limited Net Financial Benefit

  • Whether the Contract covers one or both functions, a management firm General Manager would be in place
  • The additional management fee to include the second operation is fairly modest
  • Contracting for Golf only would result in costs which would approximate the expected improvement in operational financial results in the first two years of a contract.
  • Contracting both results in better “cost-benefit” relationship
conclusions cont d1
Conclusions (cont’d)
  • A 3-Year Contract should be entered into with terms including a Base Fee and an Incentive Fee, based on financial performance and a qualitative assessment of performance
  • The Reporting Relationship should provide the Management Firm’s on-site, full-time General Manager to report to the Association’s General Manager
  • There should be a small group working with OP’s General Manager to, periodically and annually, evaluate performance and meet with Management Firm Representatives
conclusions cont d2
Conclusions (cont’d)
  • One firm is a better choice for Ocean Pines than the other firm
  • The effective date of the Contract should be no later than Oct. 31st and earlier would be better
  • Contract draft has to be negotiated completely
  • OP process will involve separate reviews by Contract Review Committee and Legal Counsel
  • 2011 Golf Season requires finalization of rates, and decisions on marketing strategies for “Package Play” in November
  • Positively impacting F&B Operations ASAP would be beneficial
  • We strongly recommend that the Board of Directors authorize and direct the President to enter into a Management Contract with Billy Casper Golf to manage the Association’s Golf Operations and Food and Beverage Operations (All Locations)
  • We further recommend that the Contract incorporate the key provisions set forth in our Report to the Board of Directors dated September 15, 2010, and be executed and made effective as soon as possible, but not later than October 31st.
