DGS Procurement Division Honored by Caltrans
The DGS Procurement Division (PD) was recognized recently by the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) for its work in helping the department purchase some long-needed equipment at a significant savings to the state. The collaboration between departments resulted in a savings of more than $20.6 million off of the original purchase estimates on 15 orders. One such purchase included the procurement of LED roadway lighting, which resulted in a savings of more than $13.4 million dollars. Another purchase of diesel-fueled sweepers resulted in a savings of more than $2.6 million. DGS continues to strive for excellence in the business of government and will continue to work with other state agencies to save taxpayer dollars.
