Buying two operating systems for every computer system

When new computer equipment is bought to refresh old equipment, systems are purchased with a license for a windows operating sytem. When IT departments recieve the systems we erase the current drive and put a different licensed operating system on the computer. We purchase at least 2 operating systems licenses per computer. If we were to purchase computers with no operating system the government could potentially save millions of dollars.
