States of Jersey signs new printing contract

The States of Jersey has claimed it will save £240,000 a year by signing a seven-year corporate printing contract.

The States currently has about one printer for every two employees and they are supplied by different companies, costing £1.6m a year.

Danwood Jersey won the seven-year contract to provide and maintain the printers, scanners and fax machines across the organisation.

New policies are being introduced on double-sided and colour printing.

And it is hoped there will be a reduction in the amount of ink, paper and power used.

The Treasury & Resources Minister, Senator Philip Ozouf, said: "The more we can identify these kinds of corporate savings as part of the Comprehensive Spending Review, the less of an impact our savings programme will have on front line services.

"We have achieved £12m in sustainable savings this year and the 2012 Business Plan has identified how we plan to save another £20m.

"I would encourage anyone who has ideas for further savings to contact us through the Value Jersey website."
