Come on LSU, itís not rocket science
By C.B. Forgotston - Dec 02, 2010
Earlier this year, LSU-Baton Rouge began an initiative to look into methods to make its operations more effective and efficient.
Today, LSU announced the closure of universityís in-house printing services January 3, 2011.†
Apparently, LSU has just discovered that technology has reduced the demand for traditional printing.† Also discovered was that the LSU printing services has been operating at ďan annual loss for several years.Ē
In yet another revelation, LSU has discovered that printing services are available from the private sector in Baton Rouge.
What took so long?
This is but one minuscule savings in one very large state institution, but it begs the question of whether LSU would have made these discoveries if it hadnít experienced a reduction in its revenues from the taxpayers.
The same question needs to be posed to every unit of state government, especially those which demand higher taxes on US to support them.
Folks, such an effort by LSU to make it more efficient and reduce costs isnít rocket science.†† Itís something we mullets do every day.†† The only problem is that government doesnít seem to think it should have to do it.
