Printer Contract Costs

It seems that schools in Warwickshiire are paying way over the odds on photocopier contracts (see http://tonernews.com/Message.aspx?vy=bb&id=24850) which is not really news to us but seems a bit odd that they are only just finding out about it and doing something.  The next bit of news we are expecting within two years is about Managed Print Services (MPS). A bit like PFI – sounds great but long term – not a good idea and difficult to get out of. Almost certainly more than running your consumables yourself.  But then – we would say that wouldnt we!
