California state, in an effort to cut costs and save dollars should turn to open source software and use VoIP services. This according to a body of independent auditors who recently released a mammoth California Performance Review. “If all of these recommendations are implemented, they have the potential to save more than $32 billion over the next five years,” the directors of the group of appointees told California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in an letter introducing the report. Moving to VoIP would cut phone bills by between $20 to $75 million a year, while open source software could cut costs by about $300,000 per state project, the report says. California, and other states should seriously contemplate VoIP as a “telephony” option, given that most bureaucrats do nothing but “gab” all the time, if not with each other, then with the media.
