Cell Phone Cost Savings

All brahnches of the Federal government employ cell phone technology. The types of phones and associated costs vary based on the source contracting office. Costs could be lowered if all Federally issued cell phones were issued under the same negotiated master contractor for minutes, text, and data service. Per minute, text, or data packet as part are excluded - each vendor must offer plans of at three sizes, covering at least minutes with options for text and data. Utilization of greatest encryption requirements and large lot buying of devices will save tens of millions. The use of this idea could potentially save 100 million or move each fiscal year across the entire Federal government, including military.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
