Say goodbye to that personal printer

The Veterans Affairs Department could save $150 million over the next five years by winnowing the number of desktop printers from 50,000 to 5,000, VA Chief Information Officer Roger Baker said Wednesday.

VA now has approximately 300,000 employees, which works out to about one printer for every six employees.

Baker wants to steer thousands more employees to use departmental printers instead of personal printers, which would not only save on hardware costs but also on toner, as ink cartridges for desktop printers cost more than those for departmental printers.
