D.C. Official Renegotiates Verizon Contract
The District government will save about $247,000 per month under a proposed cellphone contract with Verizon, the city’s chief technology officer said yesterday.
Vivek Kundra said his office renegotiated to eliminate costly tariffs, resulting in a plan that will cost the city $452,000 per month, down from $699,000. The savings will amount to a 35 percent decrease in spending, Kundra said. The contract is subject to approval by the D.C. Council.
