Leaves No Stone Unturned to Save Residents Money
Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano today announced a Copier Consolidation Project to streamline the process of purchasing and maintaining the County’s copier, printer, scanner and fax inventory. The plan, developed in conjunction with the Department of Information Technology, has already saved Nassau County approximately $270,000 annually with more savings anticipated as the project continues with implementation.
“It is imperative that no stone be unturned when it comes to seeking saving for taxpayers,” said County Executive Mangano. “This effort, along with $200 million in other cuts I have made to government, produces real savings for our residents and helps protect them from a property tax increase.”
County Executive Mangano directed staff to analyze the amount of copiers, printers, scanners and fax machines used throughout County departments. Each of these machines have service contracts and require and toner cartridges to be purchased, all of which add tremendously to the expenses of the County. In 2002, the total number of machines in operation was 3,054. To date there are 561 in service in the County with more eliminations/consolidations planned. Over the next four years, it is expected that Nassau County will save more than one million dollars as a result of Mangano’s Copier Consolidation Project.
