Doing more with less is a challenge for all offices in this tough economy. This is as true for schools and government agencies as it is for small business. In fact, Federal Agencies have been directed by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to cut expenses by 7% this year. The OMB estimates that this will save taxpayers a whopping $40 billion dollars!
Trimming that much fat from a budget is going to take some savvy shopping. Luckily, government customers can take advantage of special discounts negotiated by the General Services Administration (GSA). This week, Office Ink will demystify the government procurement process and help you get the most from your budget.
