In an effort to bring visibility across the organization as to software utilized by departments and to potentially look to consolidation efforts, the IT and procurement departments have made great strides in identifying, documenting and managing printer and software utilization throughout the organization. Currently, many departments manage their own printer costs and software program renewals and budgets related to software. By consolidating software and printer budgets into a centralized general operations line items, the city will be able to manage costs, identify redundant software needs and provide potential cost savings by working directly with software vendors in negotiating pricing.
Consolidation of these line items has been discussed with all departments. Staff has prepared a 2021 budget transfer for all software and printer budget line items into general operations line items. This practice will be incorporated into the 2022 budget process and thereafter.
This consolidation requires approval by council per Resolution No. 4 Series of 2007, because it is more than $100,000.
Staff provided information related to the consolidation of printer and software budgets during the July 6, 2021 study session.
