Time to Rethink Costs of Major Programs? One system at a time.

The following article was featured in a local paper.

"“The Motorola program and price are extremely high for a public-safety radio,” said Lt. Col. Scott Padgett, a Loudoun resident who works for IBM. He said for $36.7 million, a Midwestern state could buy an entire public-safety radio system."

The article went on to add how much could potentially be saved.

"Sarantos said if the county reissued bids, it could save as much as $10 million. “That's one elementary school,” he added."
