A state report says Virginia could save thousands of taxpayer dollars by improving the management and oversight of wireless contracts.
The report by Auditor of Public Accounts Walter J. Kucharski's office says the state spends more than $6 million to supply about 11,400 mobile phones to state workers. But agencies don't have guidelines and tools to develop policies and monitor usage and costs.
Problems cited by the report include errors in monthly bills. Some errors were attributed to problems during purchasing and when opening accounts.
