“Use it or lose it” HAS GOT TO CHANGE!!!
Offer a 10% bonus for anything you save under your budget, to be split among the employees in your department.
Either your department get $100,000 worth of toner cartridges, or you get $10,000 to split in bonuses
I bet the fed budget would be cut in half in 2 years.
Not only that- most govt. agencies have NO WAY TO PROCESS RETURNED MONEY!!
If they buy something, and it is a piece o’ crap, they have to keep it- there is no way to process a refund.
I know this for a fact- I once worked for a govt agency and we bought $15,000 mapping software- it did not work- they flat out lied to us... but there was no way to return the product for a refund.
And once they are on the ‘approved vendor’ list there is no way to get them off.
