Laptops and Desktops savings

“I have proposed an idea to OST/ITSS services to reduce cost in providing low end computers without degrading capabilities to clerical and contractor staff. Currently DOT pays about $1,600.00 per laptop and about $1,000.00 per desktop. My proposed plan is to purchase a laptop for $900.00, thus saving $700.00 per laptop and $1,000.00 per desktop. OST is in the process of purchasing the laptop I have configured for this purpose to test it and have it certify. I am confident this savings will greatly reduce IT cost thru DOT once implemented.” -- IDEA ORIGINALLY SUBMITTED BY PABLO VIVAS, PHMSA, DOT
