2. Consolidation of more than 300 copier contracts.
Hamilton County Schools now has more than 300 copiers across the district's 78 schools and in the central office. Schools spend in total about $730,000 a year on these leases, and many negotiate their own contracts with one of the four vendors the district uses.

The Hamilton County Board of Education will meet at 5:30 p.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21, for its regular monthly meeting. The meeting will be held in the board room at the district’s central office at 3074 Hickory Valley Road.
Brent Goldberg, chief business officer for the district, is proposing to consolidate those contacts, as well as the $220,000 spent at the central office, into one contract with one vendor, Beeler.
The vendor already has about 84% of the contracts, and Goldberg told the school board at its agenda session Monday that a consolidated contract could save the district up to $150,000 a year. read the rest here
