VA Looks to Save By Cutting Personal Printers

The implementation of technology has recently been viewed by the government as a definite way to cut spending. In most instances, it has proven to be efficient.

However, as the Department of Veterans Affairs is concerned, eliminating technology may be the answer to cutting costs. In the firing line is personal use desktop printers, according to Nextgov.

The movement began after the Office of Information Technology performed a study on both desktop printers and “multi-use” printers. The results implied that offices that used centralized multi-use printers saved much more money than those that used multiple single use printers.

The VA said the implementation of community multi-use printers would save on toner, ink cartridges and paper, and save approximately $150 million over a five year period.
