Wasting Taxpayer’s Money

At Caspio we work with a growing number of government agencies on their Open Government and eGovernment initiatives.

One issue that keeps coming up again and again is that we have to be registered in each state in order to do business with that state’s government entities. This is an inefficient requirement that is costly, time consuming and doesn’t serve any real benefit to the government.

The real effect of this requirement is reduced competition, which in turn results in fewer companies bidding on projects and as a result tax payers end up paying much more than they should.

Here is an example of such requirement.

Last week, the Obama administration presented its plans to utilize cloud computing to reduce federal IT costs and accelerate innovation. The shift to hosted information management will allow the federal government to free up some of the $75 billion it currently spends on IT, $19 billion of which is taxpayer dollars.

U. S. Postal ServiceThe U.S. Postal Service is already ahead of the curve, recently signing an enterprise-level agreement with Caspio. USPS manages 34,000 retail locations and delivers to every address in the nation – but unlike other agencies, it doesn’t rely on tax dollars to pay for operating expenses. Caspio Bridge will undoubtedly help USPS reduce costs and IT backlogs, while improving information processing time.
