BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - Louisiana is on track to save more than $25 million by the end of the fiscal year and it is thanks to a new state office.

The Office of Technology Services is already responsible for saving the state more than $5 million in the last two months.

OTS is a combination of three other state organizations and later this year, will take over a fourth.

Officials said the savings have been the result of consolidating hardware and software contracts, eliminating duplication of services, and streamlining support and maintenance throughout executive cabinet agencies.

The new agency began operations on July 1.
