RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - A new inter-agency pilot program will help build awareness of veterans' services by utilizing a closed circuit television network located at 124 driver licenses offices across North Carolina.

The Division of Veterans Affairs, the Division of Motor Vehicles, and the Motor Vehicle Network (MVN) are partnering on the project, according to the Department of Administration.
“This interagency partnership is a fresh approach to State government and we are excited to be working with DMV to find new ways to communicate with our veterans,” said NCDVA Director Ilario Pantano in a news release. 
Current messaging provides veterans with information about the NC Women Veterans Summit and Expo to be held on April 17, 2014 at the North Carolina National Guard Joint Force Headquarters in Raleigh. There, women veterans will have direct access to information and services offered by NCDVA and many others.

DOA: State To Save $5 Million Annually On Office Supply And Office Paper Contracts PDF Print E-mail

RALEIGH, (SGRToday.com) - New three-year contracts for office staples are expected to save state taxpayers $5 million per year, according to the agency that oversees the contracts.

The Department of Administration’s Division of Purchase & Contract announced Tuesday that Forms and Supply, Inc. is the sole winner of the contract for office supplies, and Mac Papers as the sole winner of the three year state term contract for office paper. Savings are likely to grow as schools and local governments participate in the contracts and when the contracts’ spend thresholds are met, according to DOA.
Forms and Supply, Inc. is a historically underutilized business based out of Charlotte and an incumbent supplier from the previous office supply contract. The new office supply contract covers over 4,000 office supply products that include general consumables, small office equipment, envelopes, and specialty paper and toner. This is a mandatory state term contract for state agencies, departments, institutions, universities and community colleges (unless exempted by statute). 
Schools and local governments may choose to use the state contract to take advantage of the negotiated low prices. 
Mac Papers, an incumbent supplier from the previous office paper contract, operates regionally in the Southeast with six North Carolina branches and “mini-mac” locations. The new office paper contract covers dual purpose paper, offset paper, and various paper sizes and colors. Like the office supply contract, office paper is a mandatory state term contract with an option for schools and local governments to participate, and includes further discounts when the defined spend thresholds are exceeded.
